Exhibit will be on display through June 7, 2020. This exhibit examines the employment of horses and the fact that they were indispensable during the war. The need for horses during the four year war never let up as these equine soldiers performed every task assigned them, from pulling supply wagons and ambulances to carrying scouts behind enemy lines and cavalry troopers in desperate charges. Thousands of horses died in the line of duty during the war. Some were killed on the battlefield, while others were ridden to death in the relentless heat of summer or starved in the frigid cold of winter. As the war moved relentlessly forward, horses would be instrumental in the outcome of countless battles and skirmishes and is included in the cost of regular museum admission.
