    Living History and Modern Military Encampment 

     

    Living historians portraying members of the Union Army’s Signal Corps will be encamped at the Pry House throughout the weekend. During the Battle of Antietam, the Pry Farm served as an important signal station for Gen. McClellan as he coordinated the army’s movements. Periodic demonstrations each day will showcase the equipment and operations of the Signal Corps during the Civil War. Interpreters will present the evolution of the U. S. Signal Corps, which began just before the Civil War and continues to play a vital role in the modern military. Visitors can try on uniforms and equipment and have a chance to send messages.

    Don Fischer
    Mr. Don Fischer will give a presentation on naval medicine and surgeons during the Civil War. Naval operations during the Civil War are generally overshadowed by the campaigns of armies on land, but maritime activities were no less important to the strategies and outcome of the war. Likewise, naval surgeons are often overlooked for their counterparts with Civil War armies, but Mr. Fischer will give an account of the service of shipboard doctors working for the health and welfare of fighting men at sea. Mr. Fischer will be dressed as U.S. Naval surgeon and have on hand a variety of medical tools and equipment.
