A Prototype of a Confederate Hospital Center
in Lynchburg, Virginia
Written by Peter W. Houck
Virginia’s history is replete with Civil War Stories of what happened on the battlefields, particularly in the eastern part of the state. The aftermath of these battles and the behind-the-scenes stories occurring in Confederate hospitals have received scant attention by comparison. There were some forty Southern towns distant from the Confederate capital where military hospitals opened. These were places of medical innovation, pathos, tenderness, romances, and many unsung men and women. One of these hospital-towns stands out as a prototype of a Confederate medical center: the city of Lynchburg, Virginia.
