Civil War home front exhibit opens at archives
Placeholder Image
A new exhibit featuring Camden in the Civil War opened Sept. 6 and will run through January 11, 2014. Camden was not the scene of battles, but like every community in the Confederate states, the women on the home front were busy at work every day to provide supplies and food for the Confederate Army and hospitals, as well as feed and clothe their own families. Though there were shortages of certain goods, food and supplies could be readily purchased -- for cash -- in Camden throughout the war.
