Civil War Chats: Medicine's Role in the Civil War
The greatest tragedy of the American Experience was the Civil War of 1861-1865. The loss of men was staggering even by today’s standards of destructive military might. It was a period of a marked increase in the killing power of weapons and the useful incredibly imperfect science of medicine. Civil War Chats continues with a presentation by retired physician Marty Moran, M.D. on November 13. Moran will discuss the drugs and treatments during the Civil War and the progress made for future generation in war and peace. Free Admission.
Civil War Chats, a three-part speaker series accompanies the Heritage Sandy Springs Museum exhibit "The Civil War in Sandy Springs". Get more information.
