A small selection of letters from the Love Family Letters collection is now on display in the Special Collections reading room. The letters from the Civil War era, document the war from both the battlefield and the home front. The exhibit is being held in conjunction with the publication of the TCU Press book, Yours in Filial Regard: The Civil War Letters of a Texas Family, edited by Kassia Waggoner and Adam Nemmers, two TCU graduate students. The book transcribes and edits all 79 letters in the Love Family collection. The letters remain on display through 15 April 2016.
