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. 

 

Exhibit open and available during the County visitor center's normal operating hours. (Usually daily 8:00AM to 3:30PM, except Sundays, 1:00-3:30PM).
