VA Medical Center showing Civil War exhibit

The W.G. “Bill” Hefner VA Medical Center in Salisbury is hosting a traveling history exhibit, “The Civil War & A New Era in Veterans Benefits.” The exhibit is located in the Main Street area of the Community Living Center in Building 42, and may be viewed through noon on April 5.
The exhibit was created by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA) as part of the national Civil War 150th anniversary commemoration. The display consists of six panels, and is 15 feet long. The exhibit highlights sweeping changes made in federal veterans’ benefits because of the war. The VHA History Office has partnered with the Civil War Trust to promote the exhibit’s travels on the official Civil War 150th anniversary website calendar.
The exhibit will also be on display at the 16th Annual Salisbury Confederate Prison Symposium on April 6 in Ketner Hall on the Catawba College campus from 9:15 a.m. until 4 p.m. Dr. Andrew Bullard, physician at the Hefner VA, will discuss soldiers’ pensions at the symposium.
