Course DescriptionOver three days in July 1863, nearly one in three men died during the Battle of Gettysburg. When the armies departed a few days later, 21,000 wounded men remained. No other part of the battlefield represented such an odd mixture of hope and terror as the field hospital. Only there could they find relief from their pain, comfort and assistance in their weakened and helpless condition, and life-saving surgery and medical care. At the same time, the hospital was a site of agony and misery. See how bullets and bandages met at Gettysburg’s field hospitals.
