Every Saturday and Sunday at 2:00 PM from April until October, 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. Click below to buy your ticket today.

With accounts taken from the diaries and letters of the surgeons, soldiers, and civilians who were there, this guided walking tour will explore the locations of the city’s Civil War hospitals in churches, schools, and public buildings. This program is an excellent way to take in downtown Frederick as many of those same buildings still make up the historic district today.

Throughout the American Civil War, Frederick, Maryland played a vital role to both Union and Confederate armies. Soldiers marched beneath the “Clustered Spires” on their way to battles at Antietam, Gettysburg, and Monocacy. The “One Vast Hospital” tour focuses on the wreckage left behind.

Take a step back in time and hear first hand what life was like for the civilians of Gettysburg as they struggled to survive the battle raging outside their homes. The war showed up on their doorstep, and they had to make life-and-death decisions that would forever change their lives.

As you are led through the museum, people from the past come alive and tell you their stories. These historical accounts by our presenters are gripping and bring to light the emotions and determination the people of Gettysburg had after the battle.

Tickets are now available by visiting the Gettysburg Heritage Center website.

“BARN ART IS BACK”
The 14th Annual HGAC BarnArt Show & Sale Returns in 2022!

Many of the area’s most noted artists will be showing their work in the 14th Annual BarnArt Show & Sale.
