Submitted by the Dalton Civil War 150th Commission
The Dalton Civil War 150th Commission is pleased to present a symposium on the Confederate Medical Service featuring four noted lecturers.
Beginning at 9:30 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 3, the symposium will be held in Room 105 of the Brown Center at Dalton State College and will conclude by 3 p.m. This event is free and open to the public.
The Confederate Medical Service played a major role in the Civil War experiences of Southeast Tennessee and Northwest Georgia during 1862 and 1863. Commemorating the 150th anniversary of these experiences will be the objective of this symposium. The topics include:
• “Bite the Bullet: Myths and Realities of Civil War Medicine”
• “Samuel Stout and the Confederate Medical Service”
• “Dalton’s Confederate Hospitals”
• “Medical History of the 19th Tennessee Infantry Regiment (CSA)”
The day’s format will include two lectures in the morning and two lectures in the afternoon. Join us for a rare glimpse into a little-known aspect of the Civil War that transformed each of the communities it touched.
This symposium is sponsored and supported by the Dalton Area Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bandy Heritage Center at Dalton State College. For more information, contact Garrett Teems with the CVB at (706) 876-1620 or email@example.com.
