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?and some of them were physicians also. This is a flawed approach however. We must look at medicine and even soldiering in the context of the time in which it occurred, not from our perspective 150 years later. Civil War medicine was flawed; but great advances occurred in medicine because of the War. This presentation will deal with some of the truths and myths about 19th Century medicine and will cover the practical advances that occurred during the War, but are often overlooked. A replica capital amputation kit and other medical items will be on display as part of this presentation. The presenter, Dr. Matthew Farina, is a retired pediatric cardiologist, who has been a student of Civil War history for many years. He is a past present of the Capital District Civil War Round Table, and has been editor of its newsletter since 2000. Registration is recommended.
