A Hospital Center:
Soon after the First Battle of Bull Run in July 1861, Washington became one of the largest hospital centers for the Union Army, and remained so throughout the war. At least 66 hospitals were opened in the city, some for few months and others for years. Surgeons, nurses, hospital stewards, volunteers, and members of the Veteran Reserve Corps all served at these hospitals.
