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 10 at 1:00 PM on Facebook Live for a virtual program hosted by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. You can tune in live by visiting facebook.com/civilwarmed/live at the scheduled time.
Education Coordinator John Lustrea will talk with Dr. Stephanie McCurry about her book Women’s War: Fighting and Surviving the American Civil War. Their conversation examine the myth that war is exclusively a man’s world through the lens of several dramatic stories. From impacting the laws of war to influencing emancipation policies women played a pivotal role in the American Civil War and its legacy.
Stephanie McCurry is Professor of History at Columbia University and specializes in the American Civil War and Reconstruction, the 19th-century United States, the American South, and the history of women and gender. Her current work focuses on the epic human drama of Reconstruction in the U.S. and the comparative history of postwar societies and processes of reconstruction in the 19th and 20th centuries.
