After our morning of geocaching and delicious lunch at The Brat Stop, we drove over to Kenosha, Wisc. to The Civil War Museum . I've been wanting to go there since we spied it on a caching expedition earlier this year.
They have a special exhibit set up inside honoring the soldiers from each of America's various wars. The statues were life size and very nicely carved. The only thing I didn't like was that the room was extremely dark (for dramatic effect maybe??) and it was really hard to see the statues. I tried taking some pictures but they didn't turn out very well. It's a shame because the statues were fantastic.
Another room was set up with Civil War artifacts in glass cases. The items were all in excellent condition.
I liked seeing the different outfits that the women wore and the different styles of the time.
Isn't this dress pretty? I would have loved to wear something like this.
My favorite part of the museum was the period clothes that we could dress up in and then take pictures. That was really a lot of fun!
