Introducing “The Toll of War” at The Newberry Museum!

March 30, 2024  

“The Toll of War” is a traveling exhibit by the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, Maryland. The exhibit features both the physical and emotional effects of the war on those who lived through it. The motto of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine is “divided by conflict, united by compassion,” in reference to how doctors, both Northern and Southern, struggled to aid the wounded, and often shared information across the battle lines to help aid the injured.

 

The Newberry Museum has supplemented the traveling exhibit with our local story entitled “Newberry Veterans: Medical Care, Trauma, and Recovery.” This exhibit delves into many aspects of the experiences of Civil War veterans, those wounded, their families, and those who cared for them during and after the war. In the realm of physical wounds, the exhibit examines the types of injuries Civil War soldiers faced and how they were treated.

 

Coming Soon! This exhibit will feature a Medicinal Garden in our recently renovated Courtyard curated by the Nosegay Garden Club. The garden will feature many plants that would have been used by both medical professionals and housewives during the mid-1800s. Look for the Medicinal Garden’s open date to be announced in the upcoming weeks.
