Two neighbors on North Main Street in West Hartford have filled their adjoining front yards with a huge Halloween and Civil War exhibition. I don't get the connection between Halloween and the Civil War, but, hey, it's not my yard.
It is the sesquicentennial of the Civil War -- 150 years, for those dashing to the dictionary -- so we see lots of Civil War-related information. Among the materials on these yards are placards with information about Connecticut soldiers killed at the battle of Antietam in 1862.
