Abstract: The Maryland Agricultural College, forerunner of the University of Maryland, College Park, had scarcely opened its doors when the Civil War began, and the far-reaching events of those four years of conflict affected its organizational history and the personal lives of many individuals associated with it. The exhibit "A College Divided: Maryland Agricultural College and the Civil War" highlights the lives of just a few of those individuals - students, faculty, administrators, stockholders, and trustees - examining this chapter of American history through a specific prism. The 27-panel display is followed by a bibliography and description of research methodology.
Description: The exhibit, created by Malissa Ruffner, and University Archivist Anne Turkos, was on display in the Audrey Armistead Ruckert Reception Foyer on the first floor of Hornbake Library at the University of Maryland, College Park, September 2011 through July 2012.
