In honor of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Gettysburg, Onondaga Historical Association (OHA) on February 6 will open in the museum’s first floor studio gallery a new exhibit entitled “Onondaga County at Gettysburg: A Sesquicentennial Remembrance.” The focus will be on paintings, photos, diary entries and quotes to illustrate the experience of eight veterans who served at Gettysburg in one of the following locally-based regiments: the 3rd Onondaga (122 NY Infantry), the 4th Onondaga (the 149th NY Infantry), and Battery B of the 1st NY Light Artillery. Also included in the exhibit is a three-part framed battlefield map that shows the military maneuvering that took place over the course of three days of fighting, July 1 – 3, 1863.
