    The exhibit focuses on life at home, on the battleground, and from the African-American perspective. The story of Cherokee County during the Civil War is told using quotes and first-hand accounts gleaned from original letters, court documents and publications. The McAfee and Donaldson Guard Company will take center stage when each visitor will be handed the description of one of the Guard recruits. At the end of the exhibit, the visitor will find out if their soldier survived the war.
