Home Front to Battlefront: Celebrating the Civil War Legacy
Images highlighting the exhibit "Home Front to Battlefront: Celebrating the Civil War Legacy," featured in the Eberly Family Special Collections Library from 23 June - 07 October, 2011 on the University Park campus of Penn State University.

In conjunction with the 150th anniversary of the Civil War the Eberly Family Special Collections Library will feature a special exhibition chronicling the Civil War Era and its legacy. Drawing upon an rich array of unique primary source materials—including family letters, diaries, photographic images, historical lithographs and broadsides, official government records—the exhibition explores themes of slavery and abolitionism, sectionalism, the battlefield experience of the common soldier, health and medical conditions during the war, Penn State and the Civil War, and the construction of cultural memory of the epic conflict.
