What young girl doesnt love ponies? What young boy doesnt love guns and spies and, well, ponies? And lastly, what history-loving parent doesnt go gaga over Civil War memorabilia? Fortunately, the Customs House Museum in Clarksville has the perfect exhibit for the whole family. Through artifacts, photographs, drawings and art from the Tennessee State Museums collection, this traveling exhibit explores the development and impact of mounted warfare in Tennessee during our nations bloodiest homespun conflict. Cant get enough blue and gray? On Saturday, July 26, the museum hosts a Civil War Symposium benefiting the Friends of Fort Defiance and the Civil War Trails Program; to register, visit customshousemuseum.org.
