Throughout 2015, in recognition of the 150th anniversary of the end of the Civil War and the Lincoln assassination, the College’s Notables Committee mounted an exhibition titled “Profound and Poignant: Union College Connections to the Civil War Era” in the Nott Memorial. 

Tom Werner and Andrea Foroughi, co-curators of the exhibition, have produced a glossary of personal experiences, a permanent record of the many connections between the College and the Civil War era that appeared in the exhibition as well as others that could not be included due to space limitations. Werner, the Florence B. Sherwood Professor of Physical Sciences Emeritus, chairs the Union College Notables Committee, of which Foroughi, associate professor of history, is a member. 

The glossary is available here as a PDF.
