NA BICENTENNIAL: The Civil War: Lucy Higgs Nichols

(Continued)

NEW ALBANY —

While her body’s location remains a mystery, the story of Nichols has been shared far and wide. The Carnegie Center for Art and history in New Albany supports a permanent exhibit that honors the Civil War hero. Titled “Remembered: the life of Lucy Higgs Nichols,” admission is free and open to people of all ages. 

Peters hasn’t given up on her love of local historical research. She and several other historians continue to investigate additional black women who aided New Albany troops during the Civil War.  

“[Lucy’s story is] another example of how rich the African-American history is here and how we shouldn’t neglect it,” Peters said. “We just have to keep digging.”
