|NLM Civil War Medicine Exhibit, Now Through August 31!|
|The Medical Library is pleased
to host the National Library of Medicine traveling exhibit: "Life and Limb: The Toll of the American Civil War" in the Kresge
Library Lobby now through August 31, 2016. |
"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. This exhibit describes the damage caused by the weapons of the time, the treatment of
wounds, and their consequences for the young men who survived. The
narrative highlights aspects of life after the amputation of a limb,
from military service in the Veterans Reserve Corps to civilian life and
the use of artificial limbs."
A digital gallery of images and digitized historical texts can be found in the exhibit's accompanying online gallery.
This exhibition is brought to you by the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health.
