6.) Upcoming Kornhauser Library exhibit: ‘Life and Limb: The Toll of the American Civil War’ Feb. 17 – March 29, Kornhauser Library, Health Sciences Center

More than 3 million soldiers fought in the war from 1861-1865. More than half a million died, and almost as many were wounded. Hundreds of thousands were permanently disabled by battlefield injuries or surgery, which saved lives by sacrificing limbs. “Life and Limb: The Toll of the Civil War” explores the experiences of disabled Civil War veterans who served as a symbol of the fractured nation and a stark reminder of the costs of the conflict.
