The Purchase By Blood: Massachusetts in the Civil War, 1861-1862

Exhibition: October 2011 to January 2012

The Massachusetts Historical Society’s exhibition The Purchase by Blood: Massachusetts in the Civil War, 1861-1862 follows a small group of officers–husbands, brothers, and friends of the first families of Massachusetts–through the first years of the Civil War. This was my first attempt at curating an exhibition. I loved it.
