“Interesting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 21, 2012

After visiting Antietam battlefield, it was especially poignant .
It demystified some of the beliefs we generally have about the medical practices during the Civil War.

“I learned alot here.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

I knew a little about the civil war but this place really opened my eyes to the horrors that were endured during the war. The pictures, wax models and setting were unabelievable. It will stay with me a long time.
