We usually hear that surgery and medical treatment during the Civil War was backward butchery. But was it? Let's cross over the inter-sphere to listen, as historian Nic Hoffman from Kennesaw State University tells us how complicated it really was. Here we go.

We discuss: medical care before the war; the shock of Civil War carnage and how medics initially reacted; and changes in medical treatment and surgery because of the War. Listen and learn!

    Enjoyed this podcast. When it comes to a Union story similar to Jackson's at Chancellorsville, I would offer the story of Dan Sickles. He lost a leg at Gettysburg, but survived. After the war, he would visit his leg in Washington, D.C., at the National Museum of Health and Medicine, which still has the leg bone.
