The exhibit Remembered: the Life of Lucy Higgs Nichols details this remarkable woman's escape from slavery in 1862, and her service as a nurse with the 23rd Indiana Regiment during the Civil War, to her life in freedom in New Albany, Indiana as an admired citizen whose wartime service earned her a nurse’s pension by a Special Act of Congress in 1898.
