Civil War group to meet April 5
The Brunswick Civil War Round Table will meet at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, April 5, at Trinity United Methodist Church, 209 E. Nash St. across from the Southport post office. Everyone is welcome. There is no admission fee. Visitors are invited to become members.
During the Civil War, more than 620,000 died from battle wounds, disease, epidemics and other reasons, a figure that tops the total fatalities of all other wars in which America has fought. Civil War doctors managed to treat more than 10 million cases of illness and injury during that 48-month period. Consequently, medical practices, surgical procedures and drug treatment played significant roles for both the North and the South.
Guest speaker Dr. Donald G. Johnson, M.D., M.A., M.P.H. will discuss this important aspect of the War Between the States with a presentation, “Civil War Medicine: Wounds, Diseases and Treatment Practices.”
Johnson is highly qualified to speak on this subject. His educational background, medical career and extensive research and writings are exemplary. He received his M.D. at the West Virginia University School of Medicine; B.A. History at UNCW; M.A. European History at UNCW; and a master of public health and tropical medicine degree at Tulane University. He is and has been a member of several scholarly societies, and over the years has received numerous honors and awards. His professional positions and affiliations include Duke University Medical Center, Montefiore Hospital in Pittsburgh, University of Mali Medical Center in Bamako, Mali, the Delaney Radiologists Group, New Hanover Regional Medical Center, and is currently on the faculty of the History Department at UNCW.
Annual membership dues are $25 for individuals and families and $10 for students. As a nonprofit organization, most of the dues collected go toward inviting the most renowned and knowledgeable historians covering a variety of subjects relating to the Civil War period.
