NLM Banner Exhibit on 12th Floor
The Alumni Medical Library is pleased to host a traveling exhibit from the National Library of Medicine.
Life and Limb: The Toll of the American Civil War
More than three million soldiers fought in the war from 1861-1865. More than half a million died, and almost as many were wounded but survived. 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 these veterans, who served as a symbol of the fractured nation and a stark reminder of the costs of the conflict.
Please visit the exhibit on the 12th floor, now through April 20, 2019.
