I was pleased to get a last minute invitation to the Art of Healing lecture at the Gibbes Museum this evening. The current show is Photography and the American Civil War. Cardiologist Dr. Jeb Hallet led the talk and the panel included Dr. Walter Edgar and a current combat surgeon. It was fascinating.
There is another talk on Thursday with Lieutenant Governor Glenn McConnell and the photography show continues and is well worth a visit. I got to town a little early and it was fitting to take this evening's photo of the battery where the war began. I was a good girl and didn't take any pictures during the talk.
