On Wednesday April 14, from 10:00 AM to 1:30 PM, Education Coordinator John Lustrea and NPS Ranger Jeff Bowers will take virtual viewers to important medical sites at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park for the premiere of the Museum’s “On Tour” series. Together they will highlight locations around the park related to medical care throughout the Civil War. From field hospitals to contraband camps and beyond, there are many medical sites to showcase. Viewers will also have the chance to see inside buildings normally closed to the public. To give the team time to move around the battlefield, there will be a few short breaks throughout the program.
