Preparing and Dispensing Civil War Prescriptions  Presented by Guy Hasegawa, Pharm.D.

Civil War apothecaries often had to prepare medications from scratch rather than dispense pre-made formulations. Pharmacist and Civil War researcher Guy Hasegawa will describe how written prescriptions were interpreted and how apothecaries prepared, packaged, and dispensed medicines. The lecture will include a display of antique pharmaceutical implements and a demonstration of how pills and powder papers were prepared. There will also be a brief Q&A session and an opportunity for the presenter to sign copies of his books.
