There’s No Museum Quite Like The One Hiding In These Post-Civil War Barracks Near Cleveland

On April 12, 1861, our nation entered what would become its bloodiest conflict of all time. While it may seem as if much of the fighting and game-changing history took place south of the Mason-Dixon line, you may be amazed to learn that the Cleveland area supplied a notable number of soldiers to the Union cause. Today we’re going to get up close and personal with artifacts from their lifetime, and you’ll be amazed how these mementos bring their experiences to life.
