Virtual Tour – Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum
March 1 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm EST| 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 Monday, March 1 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.
Director of Interpretation Jake Wynn will lead a virtual tour of the historic boardinghouse where Clara Barton lived and worked during the Civil War era. In this building on 7th Street in Washington, DC, Barton spearheaded relief and nursing efforts during the Civil War. As the conflict drew to a close in 1865, she opened the Missing Soldiers Office in her boardinghouse room to identify those who disappeared during the war. Her team discovered the fate of more than 22,000 missing Union soldiers.
Jake Wynn is the Director of Interpretation at the Clara Barton Missing Soldiers Office Museum and the National Museum of Civil War Medicine.
