Decoding 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?

 

This event is free and open to the public: donations to DCHS will be accepted and will be used to support similar future programming.
