(April 14, 2015) The Civil War saw the deployment of much new technology: ironclad ships, repeating rifles, balloons, machine guns, and more. Advances in weapons also drove advances in healing the damage caused by them. Join us Monday, April 20, at 7:00 pm in the library’s Community Meeting Room as Chris Craft presents a new and interesting program on Civil War medicine. Mr. Craft, from the Massillon Museum, will discuss the improvements in surgery and the treatment of wounds on the battlefield. He will also touch on the more general improvements in sanitation and healthcare that were driven by needs of large armies. The program is free for all and no registration is required.
