Binding Wounds, Pushing Boundaries: African Americans in Civil War Medicine

The U.S. National Library of Medicine (NLM) has created this arresting and stimulating digital exhibition to complement a traveling exhibit that is making its rounds across the country. The exhibition is designed to explore the contributions that African Americans made during the Civil War as nurses, surgeons, and hospital workers. Visitors who click on the "Exhibition" button can view images and primary documents culled from the NLM's archive which include historic photographs, personal letters, and diagrams of Civil War hospital facilities and camps. There are many compelling stories here, including tales about Susie King Taylor, a former slave who became a caregiver for the 1st South Carolina Colored Volunteers.
