Description
Author and historian Bob O'Connor will talk about his book "The Amazing Legacy of James E. Hanger, Civil War Soldier." Hanger, a member of the Churchville Cavalry (Confederate) had his leg mangled and amputated at the battle of Philippi, Virginia (now West Virginia) on June 3, 1861. He was the war's first amputee. He hated his Yankee peg leg, so he used his ingenuity to develop an artificial limb with a joint at the knee and ankle. His "Hanger limbs" were worn by veterans from both sides of the conflict. His company today, Hanger Inc., is in its 153rd year of operation, has over 740 clinics treating over 1 million patients annually and is the country's largest provider of artificial limbs. O'Connor's research took him to the National Medical Museum in Frederick and the National Library of Medicine in Bethesda, Maryland. He also met with company officials and spoke with Hanger's descendants. Copies of the book will be available for purchase. This Civil War 150 Project program was made possible by a grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Library of America, and the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History.
