      To be known as the Pry House Field Hospital Museum, "the house and
      eventually the barn will open as a cooperative project with the
      National Museum of Civil War Medicine, based in Frederick, Md., on
      Thursday, April 28, with a 10 a.m. ribbon-cutting."

      "Exhibits on the first floor of the house will explain the effects on
      the Pry family, medical challenges, personalities of Union and
      Confederate doctors and medical advances developed at Antietam that
      people still reap the benefits from today, Wunderlich said."

      "Gen. George McClellan set up his headquarters in the Pry House, which
      became a field hospital the day of the battle, Howard said."
