I had a wonderful delivery arrive this weekend. I've been researching Civil War Medicine lately, and I went cyber-shopping at The Museum of Civil War Medicine bookstore. You can find out more about the museum HERE: http://www.civilwarmed.org/
I have definitely put this museum and its two satellite museums on my bucket list!
Here are some of the books I received.
|So excited when I saw this return address label.|
|And inside was THIS return address label.|
|How charming is this? They sent the books wrapped in old fashioned twine.|
|EEEEK! These sorts of special touches just thrill my soul.|
|I've already read this one, and it is fantastic.|
|I had no idea so many doctors were court-martialed, discharged, and otherwise disciplined!|
|Heartbreaking, but so valuable as a primary source.|
|This books lists all the casualties treated at these temporary hospitals after Antietam.|
|Okay, so this one isn't Civil War medicine, but I'm intrigued, and it would be so helpful for other stories I write.|
|And most charmingly of all, the manager of the bookstore sent a sweet little note.|
