Confederate Hospital Room

Confederate Hospital Room
Most furnishings are original period pieces; replicas include the Confederate litter, surgical kit, and soldier's jacket. The surgical kit, made by Gemrig of Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, is typical of those used by surgeons of both armies. Vicksburg's homes often served as hospitals for sick and wounded Confederate soldiers.
