Civil War Treasures:
A Legacy of Children's Civil War Literature in Words and Pictures: The Michael Lehman Williamson Collection of Civil War Books for Young People
by Lacher-Feldman, Jessica Issue: Winter 2016
In 1994, in honor of his son’s passing, B. Lehman Williamson established the Michael Lehman Williamson Collection of Civil War Books for Young People. This collection features books about aspects of the Civil War, published from 1862 to the present. This collection, with over 900 books about the Civil War written for specifically for children, includes a broad range of genres, including fiction, non-fiction, and biographical profiles.
In 2002 Hill Memorial Library used a selection from this collection for an exhibit, Blue and Gray for Boys and Girls: An Exhibition of Children’s Civil War Literature. The exhibit was a project of the then United States Civil War Center, and documentation of that exhibition, including photographs and a bibliography are available at the LSU Libraries website.
