Founded at the close of the American Civil War, Cornell University has a long history of military service and engagement.

This periodic “Cornelliana” series examines Cornell University history, trivia, and traditions with Corey Ryan Earle ’07, who teaches AMST 2001: The First American University on the university’s history.
