Who would think an apothecary would be very interesting? Well, if you visit Hugh Mercer's, in Fredericksburg, VA, you will find the two docents will have you listening intently and not wanting to miss a word! It was very educational to learn how doctors treated their patients....in ways we are thankful we don't have to endure! Oh, the poor people of those long ago years. It makes you really appreciate what we have in this day and time.
