500 Strong: Wabash College in the Civil War  
 
Bob Quirk '50 talks with Tom Milligan '63 after Quirk's presentation. Quirk read from his great-uncle's diary he kept during the Civil War. His great-uncle received a medical discharge due to illness but was later captured by the confederates. He managed to escape, got a mule ride to Nashville, then took the train to Indianapolis. He died shortly after returning home from illness caused by poor conditions during the war.
