Occupying space inside the USAHEC's changing gallery in the Visitor and Education Center, this exhibit opened to the public on Friday, May 17, and explores the major battles of 1863, though artifacts and archival materials. Individual Soldier's stories shed light on the significance of the events, examining the battles through the eyes of the men who experienced them. The exhibit also explores some of Carlisle's local history, as it discusses the burning of Carlisle Barracks and showcases artifacts from that period, including a pitcher salvaged from the charred remains of one of the buildings. Visiting the USAHEC is free and the facility is open, Tuesday-Saturday, 9:00am-5:00pm, and Sunday, 11:00am-5:00pm. The USAHEC invites visitors to continue the celebration of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War by visiting the facility and learning more about 1863, and the battles that defined it.
