John Jay Terrell, MD
Introducing a new book of Lynchburg History. Charles Driscoll, MD, retired family physician and educator, turned his attention to a second interest – researching and writing about medical history, particularly Civil War medicine.
This new book is a biography about one of Lynchburg’s forgotten sons and a true medical hero. With help from Dr. Terrell’s descendants and local library resources, the story of his remarkable life is pieced together. Most of the story takes place in Lynchburg during the Civil War. Its central character is a man with the qualities we all would want to see in our personal physician. Brotherly love and compassion should have no boundaries – even the senseless brutality of war could not blunt them for Dr. John Jay Terrell.
