History Days to feature Civil War Medicine display with ‘Dr. Joe’

Included in this weekend’s Fredonia History Days are the Civil War Medicine presentations by “Dr.” Joe Bolivard from Forestville. “Dr. Joe” will have a huge display of authentic Civil War artifacts used by surgeons during the Civil War and discuss with visitors how the medical staff dealt with the task of caring for the soldiers during the conflict.

“Dr. Joe” will also have a limited supply of his own personal collection of rare Civil War books for visitors to see, as well as purchase in some cases.

“Dr. Joe” is assisted by his nurse for the day, Miss Lynanne Woolley, herself a re-enactor and soon-to-be senior at Forestville High School.

Visitors may visit the Civil War Medicine tent of “Dr. Joe” between 1 and 5 p.m. today in the park adjacent to the Fredonia Farmer’s Market.
