First Saturday Lecture: Civil War Medicine - Compassion During Conflict

6/1/2019 | Arrow Rock State Historic Site | Arrow Rock, MO

This month’s First Saturday Lecture topic will be Civil War Medicine – Compassion During Conflict by Dr. Michael Monaco.  Michael Monaco’s fascination with medical history began long before he became a doctor of internal medicine. Monaco was reared in Jefferson City in an antebellum home built in 1848. It served as a barracks for Union troops stationed in town during the Civil War. On more than a few occasions, Monaco’s family and neighbors discovered Civil War-era artifacts on their properties. After becoming a doctor, Monaco developed in 1994 a presentation on the medical practices of the Civil War era and how those practices evolved into modern medicine. The lecture is free and open to the public. Click here to read the news release.
