On Saturday, September 7th, members from the 9th PA Reserves Preservation Unit were at Juniper Village at Forest Hills for a living history presentation on the Civil War.

The bulk of their program was presented by a medical re-enactor, and educated residents on Civil War Medicine on the battlefield.  There also was a discussion on the uniform and equipment of a Civil War Union soldier, as well as a presentation by Ms. Joanne Shelby-Kline on the topic “The Pittsburgh Branch of the US Sanitary Commission 1861-1865.”  Many artifacts were passed around during the program for the residents to see, such as encased medical instruments, laminated lists of the apothecary medicines during that time and printed proposals to read from that era.
