After a quiet, 2.5 month, stay-at-home “vacation,” the cats at Civil War Tails are dusting themselves off and getting ready for the summer season! That’s right, we are opening on Friday, June 12!
However, not everything will be the same as before. Everyone who does not have fur and a tail will be required to wear a mask (except very young children and people with health issues that exempt them, as per the CDC guidelines). We’ll also be working to keep the museum sanitized, for your safety.
As if reopening were not enough excitement, our Civil War cats are celebrating 25 years! On June 25, our original cats, Generals Lee and Grant, turn 25. They’re hoping for a birthday cake that’s not made from hardtack… We’ll see!
Then on Labor Day weekend, the museum turns 5! So, mark your calendars now to come that Friday, Saturday, or Labor Day Monday for our annual Scavenger Hunt. The kitties tell us it will have lots of fun tidbits about their history for you to find in the museum!
Stay tuned throughout the year for reminiscences as Ruth and Rebecca remember a quarter-century of making clay Civil War cats!
