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.
