Editorial Reviews


This new book is a must for all interested in the subject of Civil War medicine. Its authors are the elite of Civil War medical scholars of our time and they give a new, modern insight to the subject. Highly recommended. --—Gordon E. Dammann, DDS, founder, National Museum of Civil War Medicine

“A collection of fresh and insightful essays on those essential, yet often overlooked, underpinnings of medical care in the American Civil War. With impeccable scholarship each essay enlivens seemingly mundane subject matter and illuminates its importance to the progress of medical science, both during the war years and beyond. --Bill J. Gurley, PhD, editor, I Acted From Principle: The Civil War Diary Of Dr. William M. McPheeters, Confederate Surgeon In The Trans-Mississippi

"Years of Change and Suffering is not oriented toward the medical professional but rather designed for readers interested in Civil War medical history. Such readers should find these essays informative and thought-provoking." --Journal of the American Medical Association
