Medical practices changed dramatically throughout the Civil War. Everything from amputations to allowing women as nurses in hospitals was affected. Bill McDermott, volunteer at the Museum of the Confederacy-Appomattox and long time student of the Civil War, will discuss how these changes impacted the lives of both soldiers and civilians. Cost: Included with Museum admission
