To Give it All to this Cause: Exhibit Opening Reception

July 1, 2018 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

New Exhibit Opening Reception. “To Give It All to This Cause”: The Beecher Family in the Civil War

Perhaps no family was more famously involved in the events that led up to the Civil War than the Beechers. From sermons to popular fiction and other books, the children of Lyman Beecher were at the forefront of the abolitionist movement.

We’ve selected six Beechers to illustrate how the family was involved both off and on the field. Highly influential on the home front were Edward Beecher, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Henry Ward Beecher. Meanwhile, James Beecher, Frederick Stowe, and Frederick Beecher experienced the war first hand as part of the army.

Exhibit made possible by the support of the Cincinnati Civil War Round Table.
