CIVIL WAR MEDICINE: INFECTIOUS DISEASE & IMMUNITY
150 years ago this nation inflected upon itself four horrendous years of civil war, terrorism and murders which lead us down the path of self-destruction. This program is dedicated to all Americans who suffered physical and emotional injury or death related to the American Civil War. It features science and medicine of the 19th Century blended with history and culture of the period providing a panoramic view of the suffering endured by both military and civilians between 1861 and 1865.
