dc.description.abstract Dr. Handley-Cousins observes that amputation has become shorthand for Civil War disability. In this presentation, she discusses how reevaluating definitions of disability can shift what we think we know about the bodily toll of the Civil War. Based on research for her book Bodies in Blue: Disability in the Civil War North (University of Georgia Press, 2019). After the presentation, Cassie Nespor, curator, has a short presentation of related artifacts from the Melnick Medical Museum. en_US
