The Civil War and Clarkstown

We have a small exhibit in the library about Clarkstown and the Civil War through the end of November.  You can find it in the exhibit case past the DVDs heading toward the Rockland Room.   There is also an online exhibit with more information at http://rocklandroom.omeka.net/exhibits/show/civilwar.  Highlights include the story of General Louis Blenker who owned a farm in New City, a look at brothers who served in the Civil War from Clarkstown, and some information about African American veterans buried at Mt. Moor Cemetery which is surrounded by the Palisades Center Mall.
