James Hoppers, Living History Lecturer and Medical Librarian will be presenting “Medical Practices of the  Revolutionary War”.  

Infectious diseases that spread from the Old World to the Colonization within the New World spread quickly.  Major diseases such as smallpox, typhus and malaria were a few of the deadly diseases spread during the Colonial Era. Most of the sick during that era could not afford a trained physician as many of the highly educated did not emigrate to the Colonies.  


Mr. Hoppers will discuss the medicine, herbal substitutes, medical hospital services and the major health issues of the Revolutionary War.  Mr. Hoppers will also have an array of medical tools and books that were used during that era on display.
