What do you know about love in the Civil War? 

In the latest iteration of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine’s “After Hours” program, presenters will delve into the romantic history of the Civil War: stories of love and romance, complete with tales of brothels and close to 200,000 cases of venereal disease. Explore these sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking tales of love lost and love gained during the Civil War.

Join us in the darkened galleries of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine for stories of love, lust, and loss that are oftentimes hard to believe; but truth is often stranger than fiction.

Tickets are $15 and feature a guided tour of the Museum with music, living historians, and interactive activities!
