Dear Wabash Alumnus:
Starting in the fall of 1981 and continuing for 25 years, my senior history majors and I researched the lives of early Wabash students. These included those who were in military service. Now all this material and effort will be brought together in one book.
You will be hearing from the College about a special alumni gathering on September 27, 2013 to help commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War. For this gathering we shall also use the theme of Wabash College Students in the Civil War, and presentations will be made by alumni, faculty, and staff. Beginning at 1 p.m. the sessions will conclude about 6:00, followed by further refreshments and dinner.
I look forward to chatting with many of you, especially those of you who did research and writing on those Civil War vets.
James J. Barnes
Professor of History, Emeritus
