Test your family's Civil War smarts while searching for scavenger hunt clues throughout the museum's collection including a flag for New York's 39th Regiment and a soldier's uniform. On select days, the kids will have an opportunity to see real camp gear and artifacts and to chat with reenactors from historic Civil War regiments about their lives during the war. Don't forget to peruse the NYHS' new exhibition "Homefront & Battlefield: Quilts & Context in the Civil War" afterwards! All ages.
