This year marks the sesquicentennial of the Civil War. That's the 150th anniversary of the start of the Civil War.
It's also the 50th anniversary of the raising of the ironclad boat from the Chattahoochee River.
And it's the 10th anniversary of the opening of the National Civil War Naval Museum at Port Columbus.
For all these anniversaries, there's a big series of programs starting in late March, all through April and a few events in early May.
Never miss a local story.
I think one of the biggest will be Winston Groome, who wrote "Forrest Gump." He'll be speaking on April 14.
The Columbus Museum has a wonderful exhibit about the Civil War. It takes up the entire third floor. I just took a quick look the other day. I'll have to go back when I have more time.
And I'll have much more about the whole event-filled six weeks later on, so keep watching out in To Do.
