Second Friday Lecture Series: The Letterman Medical Evacuation Plan at Antietam

September 13 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Friday, September 13  |  12:00pm – 1:00pm  |  Speaker: Dr. Gordon Dammann

Dr. Jonathan Letterman forever changed the course of both the Civil War and modern medicine with the innovations he installed within the Medical Department of the Union Army between 1862 and 1864.  The crowning medical achievement of what became known as “The Letterman Plan” occurred during and after the September 17, 1862 Battle of Antietam.  Letterman’s system brought order out of the chaos and carnage of battle, and thousands of soldiers benefitted from the improvements he created.
