Any subject relating to the medical or surgical aspects of the American Civil War era [1840-1880], treatment of the sick and wounded, or relating to any of the medical personalities of the era is suitable for presentation. We would also be interested in papers that would compare medicine in the Civil War with that of the Mexican War, Indian Wars or modern day treatment. Presentations, if selected, shall be limited to 45 minutes, followed by a 5 minute question and answer period. Abstracts must be typed, single-spaced and not to exceed two typewritten pages in length. Abstracts should embody not merely a statement of a research question, but findings and conclusions sufficient to allow assessment by a selection committee. Speakers selected to present will be encouraged to submit, at the time of presentation, a manuscript of their presentation for possible publication in the Society’s quarterly publication, The Journal of Civil War Medicine, after a peer review. Those using PowerPoint© will be asked to submit a handout of their presentation with three (3) slides per page. Speakers not using Power Point © are asked to submit an outline/note taking guide. These will be made part of the conference packet. These are to be submitted no later than January 1, 2011.

Speakers will receive a complimentary copy of their presentation on CD-ROM.
