Coming up: Civil War Medicine–What Went Right

From Thomas Jefferson University Archives and Special Collections

On Wednesday, November 20, 2019 at 7:00pm, Carole Adrienne will present her 5-minute trailer, a lecture and a slideshow, that is a preview of a documentary film series on Civil War Medicine sponsored by the Greater Philadelphia Film Office.

The filmmaker, who is the producer and writer of the series still in production, is an experienced researcher who has worked with primary source documents and specialists from more than 50 American institutions and organizations to create these documentary scripts.

The American Civil War marked the violent birth of modern medicine.

In 1860, fewer than 300 physicians in America had probably witnessed surgery or gunshot wounds. A uniquely American spirit propelled both the Union and Confederacy in courageously facing the massive devastation with their limited knowledge, experience and supplies.

Radnor Historical Society is cosponsor of this event.
