- The Battle-Scarred
Battle-scarred examines the Civil War from a particular perspective, drawing on the rich library and museum resources of the Countway's Center for the History of Medicine, to commemorate those who died in battle and also document the experiences of the wounded and the ill and the men and women who cared for them on the battlefield, in hospitals and prison camps, and on the home front.
Battle-scarred is an exhibit curated by Jack Eckert and Dominic Hall. The online exhibit was created in OnView by the Archives for Women in Medicine intern, Jennifer Hornsby, from the Simmons College Graduate School of Library and Information Science, in December 2012.
