    Thanks for sharing this event @CMWinkler

    There seems to be increased interpretation of Civil War medicine going on at battlefields these days. It's certainly a topic in which I am very interested and, I suppose, an engaging topic for the average battlefield visitor. Thanks again for sharing the info.
