Newburgh Museum Hosting a Civil War Event

Civil War generic

The Newburgh Museum is hosting a Civil War commemoration this weekend called Newburgh Remembers.

The event will honor the history of those who participated in and were impacted by the July 1862 raid on Newburgh by Adam Stovepipe Johnson.

One of the features is a forum on the trial of Andrew Huston, a Newburgh resident during the Civil War, who was charged with treason and conspiracy.

He was alleged to have aided Johnson’s Kentucky Raiders in the Newburgh raid.

The trial is believed to be the first conducted in the Civil War against a U.S. citizen for treason.

That event takes place Sunday at 2:00 at Preservation Hall.

There are only 125 available seats and reservations are required.
