In <a href="http://www.amazon.com/Living-Hell-Dark-Side-Civil/dp/1421412217" target="_blank"><em>Living Hell: The Dark Side of the Civil War</em></a>, Northern Kentucky University Regents Professor of History Emeritus Dr. Michael C. C. Adams gathers the voices of those who were on the firing line or in the hospital ward to create a far more realistic, and brutal, picture of the war. Dr. Adams is presenting a lecture on his work at 3 PM, April 10, in the Griffin Hall George and Ellen Rieveschl Digitorium on the NKU campus.
