    Join us every Saturday this month at The Pry House Field Hospital Museum at Antietam National Battlefield will host popular music from the Civil War Era. Each Saturday different musicians from around the region will serenade visitors in the exhibit gallery with songs and instrumentals from the 1860s. Staff at the Pry House will talk about the importance of music to soldiers in the field and in hospitals, as well as civilians on the home front. In a time before recorded music, 19th century Americans placed high importance on public performances, intimate singing circles, and individual musical skill. All performers have donated their time and talent to Music Month at the Pry House. Guests are encouraged to talk with the musicians and ask questions.

    February 2: Mr. Cory Rosenberg, of Gettysburg, PA, will play the banjo and other period instruments as he sings popular minstrel songs of the Civil War Era.

    Join us at Brewer’s Alley Restaurant & Brewery for Happy Hour!

    Enjoy Happy Hour Pricing on First Draught Beer from the Sesquicentennial Beer Series!  Happy Hour will now be held in the downstairs bar.

    Please join the National Museum of Civil War Medicine (NMCWM) and its Executive Director George Wunderlich at Brewer’s Alley in downtown Frederick for our next Happy Hour.  George will speak about the first draft of the United States Army and Master Brewer Tom Flores will talk about the new First Draught beer. 

     

    First Draught

    A Rich Man’s Beer… A Poor Man’s Fight

    This Belgian Dubbel style beer uses candi sugar and specialty malts to commemorate the Enrollment Act of March 3, 1863, the first draft held in the United States.  Any men between the ages 20 and 45 were eligible, but those with means could buy their way out for $300.  The complex aroma of the beer includes caramel and toast.  The medium to low hop bitterness disappears into the finish – unlike the bitterness of the poor man who is forced to fight.

    Bring a friend, bring the office and share in an actual Civil War experience – drinking beer!

     

    Corporate Exposures will provide a raffle wheel (draft wheel) and you will receive a ticket for a chance to win prizes. Giveaways will include pint glasses, t-shirts, museum membership and more NMCWM Memberships and Merchandise will be available!

    Mid-Nineteenth Century Wars and Military Medicine by James F. Tent, P.h.D

    Dr. Tent will examine the military medical systems that were responsible for the care of soldiers in the Crimean War (1854-56), the War of Italian Unification (1859-60), the American Civil War (1861-1865), the brief Austro-Prussian War (1866) and the Franco-Prussian War (1870-71).  The sixteen year span of time was not long, but the evolution of military medicine in that brief time frame was by any standard revolutionary.  However, the picture was hardly one of uniform advancement and improvement.  There were many instances in which military care for combatants went retrograde, wars in which soldiers on the ground and their medical establishments refused to accept advances that would otherwise have save many lives.   Even so, the medical infrastructures that confronted the wars of the mid-nineteenth century had met a basic challenge.  They continued their steady advance in treating the soldiers who entered the hostile environment.

    Clara Barton’s Civil War Career Presented  by Susan Rosenvold

    Clara Barton was deeply moved by the deaths of the 6th Massachusetts soldiers in the Baltimore Riot in April 19, 1861.  What started as a personal mission to take care of her boys grew into a career of providing those in harm’s way with much needed supplies.  Susan Rosenvold, Superintendent of Clara Barton’s Missing Soldiers Office, will highlight Ms. Barton’s career that spanned half a century; Barton’s ability to recognized the challenges that were unique to massive man-made disasters and to create and implement solutions that brought comfort to thousands, as well as Barton’s realization that her efficient organizational skills in delivering humanitarian relief during the war was applicable supporting the victims of natural disasters, such as the Johnstown Flood, which led to her co-founding the American Red Cross.

    The Antietam Early Banjo Gathering (also known as the Early American Banjo Conference) is the premier event for enthusiasts and scholars of the 19th century banjo music and culture. The conference, held at the Pry House Field Hospital Museum on the Antietam National Battlefield, raises awareness of the early banjo’s significance in the development of American popular music. It also underscores music’s importance in the lives of Civil War soldiers. 

    The event is a truly unique forum for both experts and novices to meet and share knowledge, playing technique, and passion for banjo history and its meaning in the 21st century. Each year, the conference brings dozens of people–researchers, collectors, musicians, and instrument builders–from across the nation to participate in workshops, jam sessions, and scholarly lectures. The gathering takes place in and around an 1840s threshing barn on the Antietam National Battlefield, lending an appropriate setting and atmosphere that is at once scholarly and casual.

    The banjo gathering features five different program sessions throughout the weekend. Presenters on each day talk or demonstrate on a wide range of subjects, including instrument construction, playing techniques, music, history, and other topics closely tied to the culture of the early American banjo. The conference’s schedule allows ample time for “jam sessions” and mentoring with some of the nation’s most experienced players.  

    The cost of registration for the Sixth Antietam Early American Banjo Gathering is $60. The museum will provide a continental breakfast and lunch on Saturday and Sunday. Participants are encouraged to stay overnight on the Pry House property, either in the threshing barn or in period or modern tents on the grounds. Camping overnight is encouraged, but hotel accommodations are available in nearby Hagerstown, MD.

    Registration opens at the Pry House Field Hospital Museum on Friday afternoon. Formal sessions begin on Saturday morning and conclude with a public concert given in or near the Pry Barn at 5:15PM. Formal sessions resume on Sunday morning and the event concludes with a public performance at the Dunker Church on the Antietam Battlefield in the early afternoon. As a part of the gathering, registered participants are invited perform in the public concerts. While participation in either concert is purely voluntary, attendees are encouraged to share. Each performance gives participants an opportunity to play publicly with well-respected musicians in very unique and special venues.

    Book Signing 

    Join editors  F. Terry Hambrecht, M.D. and Terry Reimer on First Saturday for a book signing of Caleb Dorsey Baer: Frederick, Maryland’s Confederate Surgeon the newest NMCWM Press publication. 

    The diary and letters of Dr. Baer open a window into a little-known aspect of the American Civil War. Caleb was born in Maryland and served in Missouri, both of which were border states with divided loyalties. Caleb served initially with the Missouri State Guard, a pro-Confederate force, and later with Confederate States Army units from Missouri, but his family members in Frederick County, Maryland, were staunch Union supporters. The split within the family created by this difference of opinion was not overcome before Caleb’s death in 1863. These never-before-published documents show a human side to the Civil War, including the toll the war took on families, magnified through the always-changing fortunes of the border states. 

    The book is 240 pages in length and retails at the Museum Dispensary Store for $17.95.

    Civil War Talk

    Topic: Birth and Growth of Inscribed Quilts by Mavis Slawson

    Mavis Slawson, collector and textile historian, quilter and lecturer, shares examples and the history of American inscribed quilts.  The first inscribed, album, potholder and friendship quilts surfaced about 1830.  Signatures, patriotic slogans and notes of endearment are among the words written in ink or embroidered on these quilts.  Inscribed quilts were created to raise money for soldiers’ needs by both the North and South directly after the Civil War.  Women continued to create inscribed quilts through the last quarter of the nineteenth century to fund community and church projects, as fundraisers in the early days of the American Red Cross, and through WW1 to purchase personal items for convalescing soldiers.  Quilters are still creating inscribed quilts today for a variety of reasons, including the support of our wounded warriors.

    Second Saturday of the month lectures series, February–August 2013.  The program fee is included in the Museum admission fee.  Free to Museum members. Re-admittance to the Museum the day of talk is welcome.  For more information, call 301-695-1864, ext. 17.
