I am a PhD student working on nineteenth-century United States history. My research explores Civil War veterans’ welfare. I am interested in how veterans’ homes, pensions, and prostheses impacted individuals and families. Central to my work is the materiality of objects related to welfare, as well as the organization of spaces intended to assist and care for elderly and disabled veterans in the post-Civil War period.
