Join us every Thursday evening in July at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine for presentations on a variety of Civil War topics.  Dr. Gordon Dammann will relate how an obscure Army doctor, Jonathan Letterman, dramatically transformed the process of evacuating and treating combat casualties, forming the foundation of the modern emergency medical system. The Summer Evening Lecture Series are free and open to the public.
