The United States’ Civil War was a conflict of unprecedented scope that brought stories of bloodshed, struggle, and sacrifice to every corner of the nation. Camden’s Historic Cooper Street was no exception. As Cooper Street’s residents were thrust onto the battlefield with millions of other ordinary Americans, those back at home were challenged with responding to absences within their community and contributing to the war effort.

As a part of Camden County’s History Month, the Mid-Atlantic Regional Center for the Humanities (MARCH) will host a tour to share the stories of Cooper Street’s residents during the Civil War. Come learn about how the street’s inhabitants were shaped by the conflict, and in turn, how these inhabitants responded to the war on the battlefield and at home.
