Strange Tales of Civil War Medicine at the Pry House
October 22, 2017 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT| Pay-what-you-please
Join the staff and volunteers of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine at the Pry House to hear tales of the Civil War that are stranger than fiction.
Come to the Pry House Field Hospital Museum on October 22 at 3 PM for a special pay-what-you-please one hour tour about the grisly, gross, and ghoulish cases of Civil War medicine. On this exclusive tour of the Pry House and Barn, visitors will hear ghastly true tales from the Civil War – stories of grave robbers, experimental surgery, battlefield horrors, and more.
Many of those strange stories took place on the Pry property. The Pry Barn served as a Union field hospital after the Battle of Antietam. Horrific, bizarre, and true stories will help you get in the mood this Halloween season.
