Civil War Surgery with Major Wayne
April 19 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm
The Library is teaming up with Civil War reenactor Major Wayne Waite to bring you this truly unique experience: Major Waite will reenact a field hospital surgery right before our eyes! Using a mannequin, historically accurate surgeon’s equipment, and fake blood, Major Waite will give a detailed demonstration and discuss the medical side of the Civil War, such as the development of medicine from 1861-65. Major Waite has been reenacting Civil War surgeries for over 15 years, and prides himself on historic accuracy. Note: these demonstrations will use fake blood, and may not be appropriate for children under 10.
