Life & Limb - The Toll of the Civil War

Life & Limb: The Toll of the American Civil War exhibit that is on display in the Halle Library lobby until January 26, 2018. This exhibit is open any time the library is open.

Life and Limb: The Toll of the Civil War is a traveling, six-panel exhibition that explores the experiences of disabled Civil War veterans injured in the American conflict (1861-1865).

While more than three million soldiers fought in the war, 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. However, the experiences of injured soldiers during the conflict and in the years afterwards are less well-known. This exhibition presents some of their experiences.
