First Saturday Lecture: Civil War Medicine-Compassion During Conflict at Arrow Rock State Historic Site

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.
