Antietam / Smoketown hospital Click on the MEDIA ITEMS below for more information


"Combine 80 tents, an oak grove, and two dilapidated cabins, and you have the Smoketown Hospital, perhaps the most well known of all the Antietam hospitals and the longest-lasting."
...John Nelson, As the grain falls

Our great feature is the assistance of Miss Hall... she has two large tents under her charge, and two good cooks to assist her... The number of patients now in the hospital is one hundred and ninety-eight. This number will be increased, with patients from other hospitals, in a few days to about three hundred.
...Lem Gentry, an Indiana newspaper correspondent, quoted by John Nelson.
