The presentation highlights the invaluable contributions key Jewish figures made in medicine during the Civil War. Their work help forged the development of the modern field of nursing, advanced hospital systems and new concepts in treating the mental and emotional scars of war. These pioneers not only saved countless lives during the Civil War, but their ground-breaking work would greatly enhance medicine’s ability to alleviate suffering for many generations to come.
