In honor of the sesquicentennial of the Civil War, American University Library is pleased to highlight books and scrapbooks from its Special Collections Department. This small exhibit features biographical, historical and fictional accounts including the memoirs of U.S. Grant and a book on the role of African American troops. The earliest work on display was published in 1875. The section on modern fiction dates from the 1970s through 2005. The exhibit will be on display on the third floor of Bender Library through August 2012.
