Ongoing Opportunities

  • May 1 at 11 AM

National Museum of Civil War Medicine Education Coordinator John Lustrea will lead a special historic walking tour through Downtown Frederick on May 1, 2021 at 11:00 AM. John will be highlighting individual stories from several of Frederick’s Civil War hospitals.

The walking tour is limited to 15 participants. Masks are required throughout the tour and we request that you practice strict social distancing. Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.

The vastness of the Civil War’s death toll can make modern day audiences forget how personal and human the conflict was. The Faces of the Wounded walking tour puts a human face on Civil War casualties. The tour tells the incredible story of several wounded soldiers treated in Frederick. Hearing their tales of suffering and triumph in their own words at the place where it happened provides a truly unique experience.
