Brad Quinlin on Surgeon Samuel H. Stout and Confederate Medical Service
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./P>
