Military Medicine During the War of 1812

A project all about military medicine in the war of 1812. Real artifacts and a short skit all in one video.





What was the most interesting thing you learned about your topic?

How not all that long ago, "doctors" used strange and almost barbaric methods of treatment. Their lack of knowledge astounds me.

What important lessons have you learned that you want to share with other Canadians?

That Canada's history is not all that it seems to be. There are many secrets and cool things that can be learned about in many different fields. I learned tons about Canada through this project.

How would you compare your life today to the lives of those studied in your project?

Very different. While their lives were very hard, mine semms almost like a fair ride compared to theirs.
