Explore the effects of military service and combat on Civil War Soldiers
Director of Education John Lustrea will talk with author Dillon J. Carroll about his book Invisible Wounds: Mental Illness and Civil War Soldiers. The book examines the effects of military service, particularly combat, on the psyches and emotional well-being of Civil War soldiers—Black and white, North and South. Soldiers faced harsh military discipline, arduous marches, poor rations, debilitating diseases, and the terror of battle, all of which took a severe psychological toll.
Dillon J. Carroll is a history instructor at Butte College in Oroville, California. He holds a doctorate in history from the University of Georgia.
