When veterans return home from war it is a time of happiness and major adjustments.  Thirteen panels display letters from veterans and families from the Civil War era through the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq.  These letters offer a unique insight into the thought and emotions of veterans and their families upon their homecoming.  

War Comes Home: The Legacy is a partnership between Cal Humanities, the California State Library and Exhibit Envoy. It is supported in part by the National Endowment for the Humanities, the BayTree Fund, The Whitman Fund, and the U.S. Institute of Museum and Library Services under the provisions of the Library Services and Technology Act, administered in California by the State Librarian.
