The Museum on Main will acknowledge the 150th anniversary of the end of the American Civil War in "An Evening with A Rebel Soldier" at 7 p.m., Tuesday, April 21, at the Firehouse Arts Center.
The event is part of its Ed Kinney Lecture Series.
The Rebel soldier will be portrayed by Fred Rutledge in this one-man stage performance.
This spring is the sesquicentennial of the close of the Civil War in 1865. Also of note, the date of the performance of the "Rebel Soldier" will fall on April 21, 150 years to the day since rebel leader John Singleton Mosby disbanded his rangers, also known as Mosby's Men, in Salem, Va.
Rutledge will discuss the uniform, weaponry, training, medical care and daily life as a Confederate soldier at that time. Rutledge, a former history teacher, became interested in the Civil War while working at the Presidio in San Francisco and assisting in a military history class.
