The Rosenbach kicks off its commemoration of Civil War 150 with this exhibition focusing on the war’s causes and earliest days, from the pre-war wrangling over abolition and states’ rights, through the election of Lincoln and the secession winter, to the bombing of Fort Sumter and the first pitched battles. Among the items on display are the papers of Elmer Ellsworth, the first officer killed in combat; Robert E. Lee’s letter to Winfield Scott resigning from the U.S. Army, and Confederate General P.G.T. Beauregard’s report on the First Battle of Manassas.
