This summer people can get a hands-on history lesson

KINSTON, N.C. (WNCT) – This summer many people can get up close and personal with some Civil War artifacts in Kinston.

One Saturday during the summer months, the CSS Neuse Civil War Interpretive Center will hold their hands-on ordinance program. The goal is to showcase some of the materials the museums has in its vault.

This week’s program displays a number of ordinances from that very important time in American history.

Operation Manager Morris Bass said visitors can see pistol bullets, rifle rounds, artillery shells and naval cannon rounds while learning more about their history.

“This way you can actually touch the artifacts and actually get a better understanding of how these things fit into everyday life,” said Morris.

The hands-on history program goes through the month of September.

While the special exhibits are only a handful of Saturday’s the museum is open, every week.
