500 Strong: Wabash College in the Civil War  

President Greg Hess was able to attend several sessions of the symposium, and at welcoming remarks at dinner thanked Jim and Patience Barnes for the event and for their many contributions to the College, including the guidance of the students who researched and wrote biographies of all the Wabash men who served in the Civil War.

'It’s a proud day for Wabash when you celebrate the publishing of a book written by Wabash men about Wabash men,' Hess said, 'and edited by an honorary alumnus, Jim Barnes and his research assistant and wife, Patience, and published by yet another Wabash man, Art Baxter and his wife, Nancy.'
