An exhibit commemorating the the 150th anniversary of the Civil War Draft Riots will remain open through the rest of the year despite being previously set to end in November.
"With such great interest we are keeping the Ozaukee Civil War Display open through December," Ozaukee County Administrator Thomas Meaux said, adding that the exception will be Christmas Eve, Christmas Day and New Years Eve. "We encourage all of our local school kids to come learn about Ozaukee Civil War history during their Christmas break."
