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 Tuesday, December 1 at 12:00 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.
On Tuesday December 1 at 12:00 PM Director of Interpretation Jake Wynn will take viewers on a virtual walking tour of Clara Barton’s neighborhood in Washington DC. Beginning from Clara Barton’s wartime home in the heart of downtown Washington, the virtual walking tour will cover the historic buildings that Barton would have passed every day. By walking in the footsteps of one of history’s greatest women and seeing many of the sights she saw, viewers will be transported 160 years back in time.
