Bleeding Gray & Blue: Marietta’s Civil War Hospitals

150 Years ago Marietta, Georgia stood as a beacon of refuge for the wounded, dying and destitute created by the Civil War.  In the late summer and fall of 1863, the Confederate Army transformed many of the town’s buildings and homes in hospitals, as the battle lines moved into Georgia.  The advancement of the Union Army deeper into Georgia in 1864, saw the hospitals in Marietta come under the control of the Federal Hospital Corps.
New research from official medical records, guidelines and correspondence brings to life these “safe havens” for the wounded. Join us as we recognize the Sesquicentennial of Marietta’s Civil War Hospitals.  This exhibit will be on display until January 24, 2015.
