Forensic and Archaeological Investigation of Civil War Military Remains. A century and a half after the end of the Civil War, the bones of Confederate and Union soldiers are still being found.
This presentation will demonstrate how a forensic investigative process contributes to American military history.
The complexity and results of these investigations have increased over the years through gained experience benefiting from advances in scientific methodology. Although uncommon, these unusual glimpses into military history provide very personal perspectives that reflect the sacrifices and harsh circumstances faced by brave soldiers.”
Douglas W. Owsley, Division Head for Physical Anthropology at the Smithsonian Institution’s National Museum of Natural History in Washington, D.C., is considered one of the foremost forensic anthropologists at work today.
