The Story of Virginia

Sick Call!: Civil War Diseases, Hospitals, and Medicine

More soldiers died during the American Civil War from diseases than from battle wounds. What were the most common diseases, and how did doctors treat them? This program examines doctors, nurses, and patients in both the North and South and how they dealt with sickness and injury. Students will use an interactive program to help diagnose a sick patient and treat them for their ailment while also learning how surgeons completed war-time amputations.
