500 Strong: Wabash College in the Civil War  

More than 500 Wabash men fought in the Civil War, and on Friday the College and Crawfordsville community gathered to honor those men, commemorate the 150th anniversary of Wabash's involvement in the War, and to celebrate the publication of 500 Strong: Wabash College Students in the Civil War, edited by Professor Jim Barnes and his wife and research associate,Patience Barnes.

One of those 500 strong was Lt. Col. I.C. Elston, pictured here in a daguerrotype given to the College by Gordon Beemer H’96 and which was part of Wabash Archivist Beth Swift's display for the event.
