Frederick County Civil War Roundtable presentation

Ongoing Opportunities

  • May 20 at 7 PM

Please join us as Kyle Dalton from the NMCWM presents: Active and Efficient: The Ambulance Corps and The Infirmary Corps. The surgeons, physicians, and doctors of the Civil War have received deserved attention in the study of the Civil War. But what about the common stretcher bearer? Hear the fascinating tale of common men in an uncommon world. Who were the stretcher bearers and ambulance drivers of the Civil War? What was their daily life like? How were they trained? Learn the answers to these questions and more with The National Museum of Civil War Medicine’s Kyle Dalton. This talk will be presented on the National Museum of Civil War Medicine's Youtube Channel.
