The Search for McClellan’s Headquarters — Livestream
January 11, 2023 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm EST
Discover what role the Pry House really played during the battle of Antietam
Join us on Wednesday, January 11 at 2:00 PM EST on Facebook for a livestream hosted by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine. You can tune in by visiting facebook.com/CivilWarMed at the scheduled time.
The Pry House at Antietam Battlefield was certainly the headquarters of Dr. Jonathan Letterman and the place where his plan for treating and evacuating the wounded was first implemented. The Pry House is also thought to have been the headquarters for Union General George B. McClellan. Dr. Thomas Clemens will discuss his search for the real headquarters of the army, and the evidence which disproves the Pry location and proves the actual location. Please keep an open mind and be prepared for a surprise!
