I visited this special exhibit which focuses on Reconstruction and found it be pretty good:

The red sash at the bottom of the exhibit case was worn by General John Reynolds when he was killed at Gettysburg.

Back in 1862, there was a board game called, "The Game of Succession." I was amazed that someone would create this during the war.

Reynolds was a Reconstruction figure? That's weird.

He was dead in 1863, but I guess it takes all kinds.

Thanks for posting.
