Visit the Harper House and a modern field hospital to see the advancements in the treatment of wounded soldiers. The Harper House and grounds will be transformed back in time to the XIV Corps field hospital as it may have looked on that first night of the battle, 154 years ago.

Night-time Hospital Tours are Saturday evening only (March 16). Tickets go on sale the day of the event and are extremely limited. (Warning: This program will simulate combat trauma, and may not be suitable for all audiences).
