The Civil War in 50 Objects Family Scavenger Hunt

In honor of the book The Civil War in 50 Objects by Harold Holzer and the New-York Historical Society, this hunt takes families on a journey around the Museum to find Civil War objects that tell amazing stories. Can you spot the shackles once used on an enslaved child? What about the models of Abraham Lincoln's hands? Print out the hunt here, and bring it in for one free children's admission!
