Dr. Mary Edwards Walker was a doctor who served on the front lines of the first Battle of Bull Run, in the Civil War. For her service she received the Medal of Honor and remains the only woman to ever receive that honor.

Please join us to hear the story of this remarkable woman who was an abolitionist, prohibitionist, prisoner of war & surgeon who volunteered with the Union Army at the outbreak of the American Civil War. We will have a PowerPoint presentation and we will be joined by Dr. Lucy M. Abbott, a Civil War doctor, friend and coworker of Dr. Walker who will share her recollections of their times.
