the Past returns for another season in 2017, kicking off with this exciting
program on Civil War surgery. Join our expert presenters as they unravel the
history behind the instruments contained in this surgeon’s case, donated to the
Dutchess County Historical Society by Vassar Hospital. Learn how Civil War
medical methods compare to modern practices: was battlefield medicine as grim
as it seems from our perspective?
event is free and open to the public: donations to DCHS will be accepted and
will be used to support similar future programming.
