The 28th Conference on Civil War Medicine will take place from September 30 – October 2, 2022. Hosted by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, it will be a weekend filled with exciting tours, programs, and experiences.

The Conference will begin on Friday September 30 with a reception at the Museum featuring light refreshments. At the reception, attendees will have the chance to see newly restored artifacts not on display and meet Conservator Sharon Norquest, who performed the restorations, do a tasting of Civil War inspired spirits, talk with the staff, explore the galleries, and hear exciting new updates on what’s next for the Museum.

Saturday October 1 begins with a tour to Seton Shrine in Emmitsburg, Maryland. The tour will cover how the sisters there acted as nurses during several Civil War campaigns. Then, after lunch at the Carriage House restaurant (included in the ticket price), attendees will tour the Gettysburg Foundation’s Spangler Farm and hear a presentation by Historian Ron Kirkwood, author of “Too Much for Human Endurance” about the farm’s time as a field hospital.

Sunday October 2 concludes the Conference with an exclusive guided tour of Monocacy by Author Ryan Quint and Historian and Former Director of Interpretation Jake Wynn.

Tickets are $125 for Museum Members and $150 for non-members. Tickets cover admission to all programs and tours, refreshments on Friday, and lunch on Saturday.
