48 East Patrick Street
Join us every Thursday evening in July at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine for presentations on a variety of Civil War topics. Local Author Joseph Collins will talk on the Battle of West Frederick, about which he has published a book by the same title. The Battle of West Frederick occurred on July 7, 1864. It was a precursor to the Battle of Monocacy, which occurred two days later to the east of town. As the advance elements of General Jubal Early’s Confederate Army descended Braddock Heights toward Frederick, they were intercepted by a mixed force of Union troops, resulting in an important, but often overlooked engagement. Admission is free.
The Summer Evening Lecture Series are free and open to the public.
