Surgeons Stories: Perspectives on Medicine at Gettysburg and Beyond

On November 2, join Robert Hicks, Director of the Mutter Museum and Historical Medical Library of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia; Barbara Franco, Founding Executive Director Emerita of Seminary Ridge Museum, Gettysburg; and Pete Miele, Chief Operating Officer and Director of Education, Seminary Ridge Museum, Gettysburg, for a round table discussion on new and emerging scholarship in the field of Civil War medicine. 

Hicks will discuss Union army doctors as a professional class, based on his new book "Civil War Medicine: A Surgeon’s Diary", which examines wartime experience of Dr. James Fulton, 143rd Pennsylvania.  Franco will discuss her ongoing effort to identify and document every surgeon present during and after the Battle of Gettysburg. Miele will comment on Civil War Medicine in the public consciousness. This special event promises to shed new light on an oft-misunderstood topic of the Civil War and plenty of time will be given to audience questions and comments.

Located in the Valentine Hall auditorium at United Lutheran Seminary.
