A "Conference Above the Clouds" - SOCWS Conference - Part I

This Friday through Sunday (27-29 March), I will be in Chattanooga, TN, attending the 16th Annual Conference of the Society of Civil War Surgeons.

I'll be giving a talk on Saturday morning entitled "The Soldier's True Friend: Patent Medicines and the Civil War."

I attended - and spoke at - the 14th Annual Conference in 2007 in St. Louis and had a terrific time. I'm looking forward to some interesting lectures, seeing old friends, and meeting new ones. On Sunday we'll be taking a tour tracing Confederate General John Bell Hood's wounding and treatment at Chickamauga.

I'll post more when I return!
