Congratulations to COL Peter J. Weina and the United States Army Institute of Surgical Research – Winners of the 7th Annual Major Jonathan Letterman Medical Excellence Award.
We lost our beloved Bettie Delaplaine suddenly in October. We are honored to have been chosen by her family as a charity to accept donations in her memory. Bettie loved the NMCWM and was an integral part of getting it off the ground. We have received nearly $5000 thus far.

Divided by Conflict, United by Compassion
The National Museum of Civil War Medicine is the premier center for the preservation and research of the legacy of Civil War Medical innovation and humanitarianism. As a living institution, we utilize artifacts, storytelling and the historic lessons derived from that era to educate the public and define the impact on today’s society.
