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.
The NMCWM is proud to present the Eighth Antietam Early Banjo Gathering (AEBG-VIII), the premier event for enthusiasts and scholars of the 19th-century banjo music and culture.
