Evans' Brigade Medical Department at Leesburg/Ball's Bluff
With the 150th First Manassas now behind us and the 150th Leesburg/Ball's Bluff fast approaching (less than 3 months away), the units portraying the medical department of Evans' Brigade have been busy preparing for the reenactment.
We have a number of medical officers serving the separate regiments of the brigade, coming from many different unaffiliated reenacting units, many of whom are members of this forum. I look forward to serving with all of them. Some of them are the tops in the medical reenacting hobby.
Pharmaceutical guidance has been prepared based on early war confederate Medical Departmental invoices for field service.
Example paperwork for has been collected for Reports of Sick and Wounded based on originals for the Brigade in October 1861. This example will also being used to prepare sick call at the event for a more accurate portrayal of sick call.
Example Surgeon's Morning Reports have been prepared and used at First Manassas, which will be used again at Leesburg based on original reports from the 4th Alabama, 2nd Mississippi and 11th Mississippi reports from late May/early June 1861.
You don't need to be perfect to join us, just the desire to do the best job possible making an accurate portrayal of the Confederate Medical Department in October 1861, and a willingness to make changes as needed to accurately portray the original cast of the Confederate Medical Department.
We still have some openings in the medical department for those interested in a October 1861 medical department experience.
If this is something that interests you, or if you'd like to serve with us at Leesburg/Ball's Bluff, please contact me.
