Tonight is one chance to see WV records exhibit
The West Virginia Archives and History in Charleston is hosting a two-hour exhibit of some of its most important records during an open house event. Between 7 and 9 p.m. Dec. 6, the staff will have on display records pertaining to the birth of the state during the Civil War, Union army muster roles and other war-related documents. Of particular interest is a diary kept by an unidentified Kanawha Valley man between 1860 and 1862. In it he has drawn a map of the Battle of Scary Creek in Putman County.
The display is temporary because all the documents will have to be returned to safe storage at the end of the evening, an official said.
