KSAL StaffJuly 18, 2016

Confederate currency, bone dice and a memoir from a nurse who also was a Union spy are among a 3,000-piece Civil War collection that the University of St. Mary in Leavenworth is adding to its library.

The e Bobby D. Lawrence collection was a gift from the Lawrence family of Leavenworth. The collection includes several memoirs, along with more than 2,000 books about the Civil War that will go into the library’s circulation and available for checkout from students and the public.

Librarians and curators say the collection has two significant areas of focus: women in the war and regional materials from Kansas and Missouri.
