Frances Butler of Poteau examines the Civil War exhibit at the LeFlore County Museum inside the Lowrey Hotel on Saturday. The hotel was the site for a pancake breakfast to benefit the LeFlore County Historical Society as well as the opening of the first museum exhibit at the renovated historical hotel. Butler said the exhibit was meaningful to her because she had an uncle, Q.A. Humphries, who died in World War I while serving in the army.'
