The Pry House will host a Civil War medical living history program to commemorate the site’s role as a medical center during the Battle of Antietam. Members of the Blue and Gray Hospital Association will re-create a surgical hospital in the Pry Farm’s original threshing barn, which served as a Civil War field hospital. Surgeons, stewards, and nurses will give hands-on, interactive demonstrations of a variety of medical practices, including triage, battlefield surgery, and the making of medicines. Displays will showcase a variety of tools and equipment used by medical officers at the Battle of Antietam and throughout the Civil War. Programs are generally kid-friendly and designed for families to enjoy together.
