 Summer Meeting

Ft. Stevens

and

National Museum of Health and Medicine

July 13, 2013

 (10a.m. to 4p.m.)

 

To commemorate the 150th anniversary of the Civil War, NCD CAMP will be visiting Ft. Stevens in the District of Columbia.  This was the closest the southern army under Gen Early came to the nation’s capital.  President Abraham Lincoln visited the site during the battle. CAMP Board member and author of several studies of forts, Terry McGovern will be our host.  Following the tour we will continue our discussions with lunch at the Radisson Hotel on Georgia Avenue in Silver Spring, MD.  The restaurant is half way to the new National Museum of Health and Medicine now located in Forest Glen.

 

In 2007, NCD CAMP visited the museum at its old site at The Walter Reed Army Medical Center.  We have an opportunity to revisit this museum in its new location in Forest Glen, Maryland and see the changes.  A guided tour has been arranged.  Current exhibits include “Military Medicine:  Challenges and Innovations,” “Civil War collections” and “ The Human Body:  Anatomy and Pathology

 

We will meet at Fort Stevens, located at 1339 Fort Stevens Drive, NW, Washington DC at 10:00.  This is near 13th Street and Quackenbos Street, NW.
