At Dickinson College, the Junior and Senior classes request the end of term be brought forward

Old West, Dickinson College, 1860, detail
04/20/1861
In Carlisle, Pennsylvania, faculty members of Dickinson College debated messages from both upper classes that "in view of the disturbed state of the country, the examinations might be held at once and the term ended." The faculty made no decision, however, and the term ended on schedule.
