Medicine and Diseases in the Civil War



The Civil War devastated both sides with blood on the battlefield and disease. Of the approximately 620,000 soldiers who died in the war, two-thirds of these deaths were not the result of enemy fire but of a force more potent than any army of men: disease. Join Andy Bennett to learn about Civil War medicine, including field wounds, procedures, and diseases.

The Clara Barton: Angel of the Battlefield Traveling Exhibit will also be on display on the mezzanine.
