  All Day Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War   The deadliest weapon of the Civil War was one that nobody could see, killing two soldiers for every one felled by gunfire. The extraordinary casualties caused by that invisible killer, disease; the conventional weapons used to create slaughter on an unprecedented scale; horrific injuries suffered on the battlefield; and the heroic efforts of medical personnel to treat soldiers on both sides are described in detail in “To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War,” a new exhibit runs through 2013 at the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum in Springfield. To Kill and to Heal: Weapons and Medicine of the Civil War” opens about a month after the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Shiloh, the first Civil War battle with massive casualties on a scale that indicated what the remaining years of the war would bring. Glenna Schroeder-Lein is the curator, and she worked closely with an exhibits team consisting of John Malinak, Michael Casey, Carla Smith, Katie Grant, the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Library Foundation, staff from the Illinois Historic Preservation Agency, and numerous community groups, institutions, and individuals to create the exhibit. The experiences of actual soldiers are prevalent throughout the exhibit, including quotes and photographs, lending a human touch to the horror of war. Some of the images come from original medical files and graphically depict the effects of deadly weapons and even deadlier germs on the bodies of Union and Confederate soldiers. Paid admission to the Abraham Lincoln Presidential Museum is required to view the exhibit. Admission prices are $12 for adults, $9 for senior citizens, and $6 for children. A special admission rate of $5 is available to those who want to visit only the new exhibit. For more information, visit www.presidentlincoln.org.

Each of us can see ourselves and our neighbors in the characters portrayed throughout the show. With that in mind, Sordid Lives also brings to light challenges every community is forced to face. Therefore, it is our goal with this production to donate the proceeds from each performance to three local organizations which help our community more easily face these challenges. UCP provides support to our community through comprehensive services to over 1,000 infants, children and adults with disabilities in Central Illinois. The Phoenix Center is Springfield's LGBT Community Center, organizing many events to promote equality and celebrate diversity. In addition, the Center provides free HIV & Hepatitis C testing, HIV prevention education in the schools and throughout the community, various support groups, and transitional housing to homeless men and women who are HIV+. The Sojourn Shelter and Services, Inc. provides support and services for victims of Domestic Violence. Many of these families seek help after suffering not only physical, but mental and emotional abuse. Sordid Lives opens at The Legacy Theatre (www.atthelegacy.com) September 28-30 and October 5-7. Show times are 8pm Friday and Saturdays and 2pm on Sundays. Purchase tickets online at www.brownpapertickets.com or by phone at 1-800-838-3006. For more information, contact A HA!
