This comprehensive, large-scale experience covers sectional tensions within Virginia preceding the Civil War, the violence and chaos of the war surrounding West Virginia’s formation, and the difficult aftermath as the new state struggled to forge its destiny during Reconstruction.
Born of Rebellion explores this tumultuous and complex era from a wide range of perspectives, including politicians, common soldiers, women, and African Americans. Not simply a story of war and politics, Born of Rebellion conveys to audiences the complexities and pitfalls that accompanied West Virginia’s arduous journey to separation from Virginia.
Born of Rebellion is a traveling exhibit from the West Virginia Humanities Council.
