Background:

Author Kevin R. Pawlak will be at GCC’s Medina Campus to discuss his book “Shepherdstown in the Civil War: One Vast Confederate Hospital” on Tuesday, February 6, 2018.

Due to its location, during the Civil War the small town of Shepherdstown, West Virginia was suddenly flooded with Confederate soldiers wounded in battle. Homes and churches transformed into triage centers and the town, into “one vast hospital.”

Join us as Pawlak shares this unique story from our nation’s history. Pawlak’s presentation will begin at 7 p.m. at GCC’s Medina Campus. All lectures are free and open to the public.

Pawlak serves as the director of education for the Mosby Heritage Area Association in Virginia and is also the author of “The Heaviest Blow Yet Given the Confederacy: The Emancipation Proclamation Changes the Civil War.”
