Aftermath: The Wounded and the Dead
August 12 @ 8:00 pm - 9:00 pm
This will be the last of three campfire programs over the summer. The campfire programs are a chance for park staff to explore topics that might not be suited to more traditional walking tours. See our full schedule of campfire programs and History at Sunset programs here: https://www.nps.gov/frsp/learn/news/special-summer-programs.htm
John Hennessy will look at the immense efforts to cope with the aftermath of battle in the Fredericksburg region, from treating the wounded, to burying the dead, to, finally, according the dead dignified burials.
