Pry House Field Hospital Museum 

Civil War Medicine… it’s not what you think.

On Saturdays during the month of January, The Pry House Field Hospital Museum, at Antietam National Battlefield, will treat visitors to a bit of winter hospitality! Each Saturday, the Pry House will feature a hot winter drink that was popular during the 1860s as well as today. Guests can warm up by partaking of a hot beverage period to the Civil War, as well as something to nibble on! Staff at the Pry House will talk about how coffee, hot cocoa, mulled cider, and other warming drinks were important to soldiers and civilians, North and South, throughout the war.

January 5: Hot Chocolate

January 12: Coffee

January 19: Tea
