Did you know that sideburns are named after the Civil War general Ambrose Burnside? In the Museum's second annual Civil War Beard Competition, participants will literally face-off beard to beard in this facial hair competition that celebrates the iconic styles of Civil War-era facial hair. Kids can join in on the action too, with two crafty categories designed just for children. Entry is free with Museum admission.
