There is a special Civil War exhibit inside the Alfred O'Connell Library at the Batavia campus of Genesee Community College. It's part of a series of activities commemorating the 150th anniversary of America's most divisive conflict.
It features more than a dozen miniature models depicting wartime scenes and situations of the Civil War. There are authentic weapons and war accoutrements, uniforms, a tent, and a selection of framed newspapers dating back to the 1850s.
The exhibit continues through February 17 and is open during normal library hours. Spring hours are:
Monday through Thursday -- 7:30 a.m. to 9:30 p.m.
Friday -- 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
