This program has been cancelled, and we apologize for any inconvenience. Visit our calendar for a list of other upcoming D.C. Mondays programs.

The story of African American medical personnel who served during the Civil War is an often overlooked and neglected part of Civil War history. In this talk, Jill Newmark from the National Library of Medicine shares the story of one D.C. hospital that treated black soldiers and civilians, and the African American nurses and surgeons who served there.

This program is part of the D.C. Mondays at the Museum series inspired by the Albert H. Small Washingtoniana Collection. Free; no reservations required. Bring your lunch and enjoy a cup of coffee on us.
