3996Re: [TalkAntietam] Field Hospitals
- Jan 1, 2008Dear George,
The Trail Graphics map of Antietam (available at the Antietam VC
Bookstore) gives locations of many of the CW field hospitals.
In reality, almost all the churches in Washington and Frederick
Counties became hospitals after the battle. Kathleen Ernst's very
compelling book about Maryland Civilians in the Civil War (which,
IIRC, is also for sale there at Antietam) talks about some of the
hospitals and even more importantly civilian casualties due to
disease following the battle.
Hope this helps!

Subject: [TalkAntietam] Field Hospitals
Is there a book or other document that lists the structures in
Washington County, Maryland that were used as hospitals (field
otherwise) during and after the battle of Antietam?
If not it would be interesting to identify and map the existing
structures in Washington County that were used during and after
17, 1862 for that purpose.
Happy New Year!
