NORTHFIELD, Vt. (AP) — Vermont's Norwich University is presenting the third installment of an exhibition about the military college's involvement in the Civil War.

The exhibition considers the military draft and prisons, and explores mourning rituals during the Civil War period.

The museum on the Northfield campus is free and open to the public.

The exhibit runs from April 8 through Dec. 20, 2013.
