Medical Care During the Hard Winter
March 18, 2021 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm$10
Join METC and Morristown National Historical Park Chief Curator Dr. Jude Pfister for a virtual guided tour of the exhibits at the park museum relating to medical care during the Revolutionary War on Thursday, March 18 at 7 pm. Morristown played host to Washington and the Continental Army for two major winter encampments in 1777 and 1779-1780. One landmark decision by Washington, inoculation of the army against smallpox, occurred in Morristown. This presentation will cover medical care in general during the period before focusing on Morristown and the stories associated with the army’s care. Dr. Pfister will also discuss some of the thinking that went in to creating the exhibits. Pre-registration for this event is required for access to the Zoom link.
