GREAT FALLS - The Great Falls Public Library is running a series of events to honor and remember the Civil War. The Great Falls Public Library saw the first in a series of informative programs itself honoring the anniversary of the Civil War.

"So we see the Civil War through the eyes of the African Americans, after all for the rest of us it unified the country. But for African Americans it meant freedom or slavery," explains Historian, Ken Robinson.

In fact all month the library will be showcasing different aspects of the Civil War through song, speech and performance.

"Have a series of events that would appeal to a broad section of the Great Falls public and so we got sessions that are music, we have got re-en actors, we got the first US Volunteer Infantry in camp over at library park across the ally," says Robinson

And while you may have missed last nights events you can still catch the libraries other great feature programs.

"Their all free events start at 7 there are a couple of Saturday 10-4 day events," says Robinson

The next event will feature items and stories from relatives of those who fought in the war.
