Civil War memorabilia up for auction

Breaking News

LENOX, Mass - It's one of the largest and rarest collections of Civil War memorabilia in the entire country. And soon, it could be yours.

"This is probably one of the hardest things that we had to do, emotionally," said Eastover Resort owner Ticki Winsor.

Eastover Resort in Lenox is the home of the Civil War Museum. But because of the bad economy, Winsor is forced to sell the entire property, including everything in the museum.

"I feel that when you have something of this magnitude, of this interest to others, that it should be seen. So we decided, with great emotion, that we would sell it," said Winsor.

It's all being auctioned off in August. There's already huge interest from people and museums across the country.
