Answering the Call: Service & Charity in the Civil War

In 2015, the United States of America marks the 150th anniversary of the end of its Civil War (1861-1865). The Knights of Columbus Museum commemorates the occasion with Answering the Call, an exhibition featuring profiles of Catholic soldiers, chaplains, and religious (nurses) during the four-year conflict. The exhibition opens March 14, 2015, and centers on the wartime struggles and hardships, but also highlights acts of bravery, charity and compassion the midst of the turmoil.
