Description

The Crimean and Civil War are two wars that rarely get compared despite their overly similar characteristics. This paper argues that cross cultural experience between the Crimean and Civil War did occur within military medicine, with key figures such as Florence Nightingale and Julian Chisolm. This paper takes secondary sources about military medicine and uses it to connect the primary sources with the cross cultural experience. Many historians focus on Paris, Britain, and Scotland universities when studying cross cultural studies of medicine. Looking at cross cultural studies on military medicine offers a completely different take on how Americans studied medicine. By researching letters, manuals, and diaries this paper hopes to dissect the reasoning for the cross cultural ties between the Crimean and Civil War.
