Join us every Thursday evening in July at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine for presentations on a variety of Civil War topics.  Local Author Bob O’Connor will talk on the subject of his latest book, James Edward Hanger. A Confederate veteran, Hanger was the first documented amputee of the Civil War. He would go on to form the J. E. Hanger Company, still one of the world’s leading manufacturers of prosthetic limbs. Admission is free.

The Summer Evening Lecture Series are free and open to the public.
