When the Family Goes to War, and the War Comes Home @ National Museum of Civil War Medicine
Join us at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in the Delaplaine Randall Conference Room on June 17 at 2:00 PM for a special event in honor of PTSD Awareness Month. Author and historian David O. Stewart will discuss the history behind his novel The Burning Land, and his research into the impact of combat on soldiers in the Civil War.
PTSD was unheard of in the 19th century, but conditions that were called “nostalgia” or “soldier’s heart” are seen today as symptoms of the affliction that affects the main character in Stewart’s novel.
This event is included with admission and free for Museum members.
