The exhibit aimed to make the Civil War "strange again." You could find Manassas and Appomattox, a letter from the Confederate government seeking recognition from Pope Pius IX, or a facsimile of two separate versions of the 13th amendment—one that outlawed slavery, and one that did not.Part One of the exhibit ran from April 30, 2010 through September 6, 2010
