In honor of Veterans Day, Garst Museum in Greenville, Ohio is pleased to host a special Civil War exhibit and lecture on Saturday and Sunday, November 10 and 11, 2012. The exhibit, A Civil War Expedition: A Soldiers Life, features the comprehensive thirty-year collection of Eaton area resident Jack Barnhart. Barnhart’s collection has been featured at several National Parks, the Ohio Historical Society, and Greenfield Village at the Henry Ford Museum. The exhibit will be open to the public on Saturday, November 10, 10:00 am to 4:00 pm and Sunday, November 11, 1:00 pm to 4:00 pm.

As a highlight of the weekend Veterans Day program, on Sunday, November 11 at 2:00 p.m., Jack Barnhart will present a lecture focusing on his Civil War collection. Mr. Barnhart will share several little known stories about the Civil War, information about the exhibit, and his personal experience in collecting Civil War artifacts.

The weekend exhibit and Sunday lecture are free to the public, however, regular admission will apply to tour the rest of the museum. The exhibit and lecture will be hosted in the Lowell Thomas Meeting room and is accessible via the rear entrance located off the main parking lot. To our honor our veterans, any veteran who brings in a photo showing them in uniform will receive free admission for themselves and their immediate family to tour the entire museum Saturday or Sunday.
