In celebration of the 200th anniversary of Latin America’s wars of independence, the Princeton University Library has mounted a dramatic display of medals and orders that illustrate the recognitions awarded to soldiers and civilians in the form of wearable insignia. The exhibit "From a Thankful Nation," which is free and open to the public, is on display in the main gallery of Firestone Library through August 3. A public exhibit lecture titled "Defining the Nation" by Miguel Centeno, professor of sociology and international affairs and chair of Princeton’s Department of Sociology, will be held at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 13, in McCormick Hall, Room 101 on the Princeton University campus.
