What was the Civil War like? In our daily lives, it is hard to imagine a war that happened on our own soil. With the help of the Bangor Museum and History Center, however, imagining is easier. 

Step off of Union Street into the museum, and you will be transported 150 years into the past. Walk through the hall of soldiers. Peer into a parlor Scarlett O'Hara could have decorated. You can even hobble around on a replica of a peg leg. It's all part of Bullets and Bandages: The Passions and Price of the Civil War. The exhibit, which was sponsored by Bangor Savings Bank, displays everything from rifles and swords to medical kits. The exhibit is on display through Oct. 12.
