*Weather Update* Decoding the Past: Treasures from Dutchess County History at Poughkeepsie Boardman Road Library

Due to tomorrow’s predicted storm, our first Decoding the Past program has been canceled. We plan to reschedule for the second half of April and I will be in touch as soon as we have a date and time.

Please be safe in the winter weather and thank you for supporting Dutchess County History!

Decoding the Past returns for another season in 2017, kicking off with this exciting program on Civil War surgery. Join our expert presenters as they unravel the history behind the instruments contained in this surgeon’s case, donated to the Dutchess County Historical Society by Vassar Hospital. Learn how Civil War medical methods compare to modern practices: was battlefield medicine as grim as it seems from our perspective?

This event is free and open to the public: donations to DCHS will be accepted and will be used to support similar future programming.

Please contact the Dutchess County Historical Society with any questions at dchistorical@verizon.net or by phone at 845-471-1630.
