        The Birth of Modern Medical Care in America | The Good Stuff: Time Capsule

        Examine how the horrors of the Civil War battlefield forced medicine in America to evolve from a crude practice to a profession grounded in science, in this video from The Good Stuff: Time Capsule. Using video and discussion questions, students learn about how medical innovations like the triage system, limb amputations, and general hospitals saved thousands of lives and changed Americans’ expectations regarding healthcare after the war.
