Since 1753, Carlyle House has served many key roles in Alexandria, VA's history. The city was torn apart by the Civil War in 1861. "Mansion House Hotel" built on the Carlyle property, and the house itself were commandeered by the Union Army for use as a hospital.
This exhibit interprets Civil War life at Carlyle House and the "Mansion House Hospital" – home to brave nurses, bold spies, and battle-weary soldiers until 1865.
Floating graphics visually expand the changing exhibit space and keep the white-washed brick and stone walls of the original architecture exposed. Hanging graphics and labels are produced on ecologically repsonsible materials.
