July 24, 2011

PROVIDENCE — Woonsocket’s long overlooked connections to the Civil War have gone on display at Brown University’s John Hay Library thanks to a collaborative effort by the Library’s special collections department and the Foss Media Center at Woonsocket’s Oak Hill Cemetery.
Foss Media Director Elizabeth Vangel, a Woonsocket native, worked with Hay Library curator Holly Snyder to offer “Ricochet: Woonsocket in the Civil War” as a Hay Library exhibit running through Sept. 23. The project marks the 150th anniversary of the opening of the war between the Union and the Confederate states in 1861.
