Program Description

Event Details

Victorians treated sickness and injury very differently than we do today. Then, they primarily relied on home remedies, natural cures, and prayer. This lecture will discuss the various therapies for disease, some that worked and some that did not. We will also talk about treatments prescribed by doctors, such as bleeding and purging, and touch on how Civil War doctors treated battlefield injuries.
