Brad Quinlin

Surgeon Samuel H. Stout and Confederate Medical Service
In A Free Live Video Presentation
Historian, Brad Quinlin, will discuss Surgeon Samuel Hollingsworth Stout and the Confederate Medical Service. As Medical Director of Hospitals for the entire Army of Tennessee, Dr. Stout was responsible for coordinating acquisition of medical supplies and materials; management of doctors and other medical personnel; and the near constant relocation of 60 hospitals in Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. After the war, Stout taught at the Atlanta Medical College before resuming private practice in Georgia, and then Texas, where he died in 1903. Dr. Stout is best known for developing mobile Civil War hospitals - ones that moved from place to place, as the lines shifted.

Brad Quinlin has spent many years researching and studying the Civil War. He served as a member of the 'Ask the Experts' panel for the quarterly publication, Ohio Civil War Genealogy Journal, published by the Ohio Genealogy Society. He has been instrumental in identifying soldiers buried at Marietta National Cemetery and has successfully identified a previously "unknown" soldier buried at Kennesaw Mountain National Battlefield Park. Mr. Quinlin has been engaged as a speaker at some of the most prestigious Civil War Symposiums and conferences in the nation and many people have benefited from his research on battles, from Shiloh to the Atlanta Campaign. He provides boots-on-the-ground battlefield tours for groups/families and has even had the honor of guiding a tour for Vice President Cheney and his family at Chickamauga. Those who are serious about obtaining a knowledgeable guide for a meaningful tour of a southeastern battlefield, should certainly consider securing Mr. Quinlin's guide services.

Seating is limited. You don't have to be a member of CivilWarTalk to attend.
