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 Wednesday, March 17 at 1:00 PM on Facebook Live for a virtual program hosted by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine and the Seminary Ridge Museum. You can tune in live by visiting facebook.com/civilwarmed/live or facebook.com/seminaryridgemuseum/live at the scheduled time.
Did you know that a knife fight almost erupted in the Seminary Hospital in July 1863? This is only one of the many stories that played out within the walls of Schmucker Hall during its use as a hospital following the Battle of Gettysburg. Join Pete Miele of Seminary Ridge Museum and Education Center and Jake Wynn Director of Interpretation at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine as we explore the lesser-known deeds of patients, nurses, and chaplains during the summer of 1863.
