Civil War Medicine: Myth and Reality
Civil War medicine has been described by the three "B's" – butchery, barbaric and brutal – by many historians on The History Channel and The Civil War Journal. Civil War medicine was flawed; but great advances occurred in medicine because of the War. The presenter, Dr. Matthew Farina, is a retired pediatric cardiologist and a past president of the Capital District Civil War Round Table. Registration is recommended.
