Civil War Hospital Walking Tour
August 5 @ 10:30 am - 5:00 pm
An event every week that begins at 10:30 am on Saturday, repeating until September 30, 2023
Every Saturday at 10:30 AM and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until September, docents from the National Museum of Civil War Medicine will explain how Frederick became “One Vast Hospital.” Arguably the most trying moment in city’s history came after the Battle of Antietam in the fall of 1862. The town’s population doubled when 8,000 wounded soldiers were delivered by ambulance to make-shift hospitals throughout Frederick.
Tickets are $15 and include admission to the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in addition to the walking tour. Tickets are free for Museum members, but you must still reserve your spot. Reservations will be accepted on a first come first served basis.
