May 25, 2020 @ 10:00 am - 11:00 am EDT| FREE
COVID-19 and closures won’t stop us from sharing the incredible lessons we can learn from studying medical care during the Civil War!
Join us on Memorial Day, May 25 at 10:00 AM on Facebook for a virtual program hosted by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
Before you start grilling this Memorial Day, tune in to the Museum’s Facebook page for an interpreted reading of Clara Barton’s 1879 Decoration Day Address (the pre-cursor to Memorial Day). Delivered by Living Historian Carolyn Ivanoff in period clothing, this is sure to be a special presentation.
