In September 1862, the Confederate forces under General
Robert E. Lee marched into MIddletown Valley and soon engaged in fierce
battles with General George McClellan's Union Army at South Mountain and at
Antietam. There were enormous casualties and many churches and homes were
turned into makeshift hospitals to treat the massive number of casualties.
Betsy Estilow, professor emerita at Hood College and President of the Board
of Directors of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine, will share a talk that
focus on the care of the thousands of wounded soldiers left in the wake of these battles.
