Union Museum of History and Art invites everyone to visit its exhibits and associated events that focus on the culture, history, and art of Union Parish and beyond. The exhibits rotate about every quarter, bringing fresh subject matter to the public. The current exhibit, “Civil War in North Louisiana,” studies the American Civil War as it impacted the people and places of this region, from the Red River valley to the wide Mississippi. This exhibit ends Sept. 20.
Several outstanding speakers are scheduled, bringing scholarly research about particular subjects, including the 31st Louisiana Regiment (hundreds of Union Parish men served in this unit), the Vicksburg campaign (hundreds of Union Parish men served here), the Red River campaign, and the Louisiana Tigers.
