Marbleheaders were the first to join the Union cause in Massachusetts as the Civil War broke out. The Civil War Exhibit showcases Marblehead's role in the Civil War with objects, documents and photographs from the Marblehead Museum's collections. The G.A.R. Room is preserved as it was when the last meeting was held in the 1930s. Volunteers are on site to answer questions. The Marblehead Museum's award-winning DVD, "Marblehead and the Civil War," runs throughout the day and is available for purchase.
