RALEIGH, NC - People who are interested in the Civil War can look at a variety of materials from the era at a special program inside the State Capitol.
The Department of Cultural Resources says staff from the Capitol and State Library will display authentic Civil War era materials from the library's collection on Saturday and offer tours of the recreated library on the Capitol's third floor. It's on that floor where the state stored many of the important documents throughout the war.
The free event which is part of the statewide 2nd Saturdays series starts at 1 p.m. at the State Capitol. Tours are scheduled for 1 p.m., 1:30 p.m., 2:30 p.m. and 3 p.m.
