PostSubject: Annual Civil War Medicine Conference   11/24/2009, 5:45 pm

The Society of Civil War Surgeons 17th Annual Convention
That’s right, our conference will be held on the grounds of West Point in the historic Thayer Hotel. We have invited LTG Eric B. Schoomaker, Surgeon General of U. S. Army, to be our Keynote Speaker and are awaiting his reply. The Medical Director of the Academy, Col. Michael A. Deaton, has accepted our invitation to attend. Society members are working on a 3-4 hour tour of the Academy for Saturday afternoon to include the cemetery, museum, and Visitor’s Center.

Through special arrangements with the Thayer Hotel, we have procured a discounted room rate of $129/night, single or double occupancy (+8.13% room tax). This is approximately 52% below the regular room rate. These rates will be good for two days prior to and two days after the conference dates. We have also arranged with American Airlines, Avis Car Rentals, and Hertz for discounted fares.

The following speakers have committed to a presentation: Edgar G. Archer, Ph.D. - Colonel Sly, C.S.A.; Sr. Mary Denis Maher, CSA on the Sister Nurses in the Civil War; George Munkenbeck presenting An Accurate and Discriminating Mind: Dr. Joseph Lovell, M.D. - the First Surgeon General of the U.S. Army; John T. Moss, V.M.D. on The Influence of the Civil War on Veterinary Medical Education in America; Les Buell on the 18th and 19th Century Glass and Mineral Springs of the Northeast; Jackie Greer, R.N. on Crimean War Nursing; John Stancil on Dr. David Llewellen - Martyr of the C.S.S. Alabama: Stacey Peeples on The Pennsylvania Hospital During the Civil War; and John Fahey on Dr. Bernard John Dowling Irwin: Post Surgeon, West Point Military Academy, 1873-1878. Paul DeSessa, C.R.N.A., will present a pre-conference workshop on Friday morning demonstrating two of his surgical techniques. HOWEVER, we would still like to have 2-3 more speakers. Please submit your tentative titles as soon as possible and abstracts are due by October 1, 2009.

This will be the biggest conference in the Society’s history. Don’t miss out. Start planning your trip today!
