Civil War Veterans Exhibit Acknowledgements

A Mass Humanities Expand Massachusetts Stories grant allowed us to partner with the UMass Amherst Department of History to hire Public History graduate student Emma Lewis. With Graham Warder, and with aid from staff of the Massachusetts Historical Society, we researched and created the curriculum and the online exhibit: How the Civil War Transformed Disability. 

Creation of the exhibit and overall Reform to Equal Rights: K-12 Disability History Curriculum was made possible by a Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources grant. 

Emerging America also gratefully acknowledges these collections for assistance with the exhibit: 

 

The exhibit is freely open to the public, and all lessons and slides in the curriculum are offered at no cost. Nearly all of the primary sources come from the Library of Congress and other public agencies. Teachers may use them in their classrooms. Publishers should confirm the copyright status of all sources. All users must credit the Collaborative for Educational Services, Emerging America, and the Library of Congress Teaching with Primary Sources Program, and link to the Reform to Equal Rights: K-12 Disability History Curriculum at Emerging America.  

Content in this exhibit does not indicate an endorsement by the Library of Congress or of Mass Humanities.
