Henry Berry Lowry: An Examination of the Outlaw’s Influence of Post Civil War Media and Reconstruction Era Politics

The purpose of this exhibit is to better understand the conditions that led to the creation of Henry Berry Lowry as "The Swamp Outlaw,” and how Northern and Southern medias used the North Carolinian outlaw as a tool to fight their battles in lieu of full armies. The depiction of the outlaw, and people with whom those depictions are associated, play an important role in the history and the understanding of narrative of the Lowry Gang, and with the story of Reconstruction America.
