Time: 7:30 PM
Place: Bristol Glen, Newton, New Jersey
Sept. 19, 2017 – The Army of the Potomac and the Birth of the Ambulance
Corps – by Jason Dilts.
This month’s fascinating presentation will follow the organization and
implementation of the Ambulance Corps during the American Civil War.
Based on General Orders 147 on August 2, 1862, which gives the
regulations for the organization of the ambulance corps and the management
of the ambulance trains, the path to a practical and competent medical
system during the War was not an easy or smooth one. Mr. Dilts will follow
the deficient and impractical regulations for the operation of ambulances
during the beginning of the War, the realization of the need for
improvements, the implementation of those improvements all the way
through the lasting impact of those improvements on the War, the soldiers,
and society as a whole.
Mr. Dilts is currently portrays a Surgeon with the rank of Captain in the 27th
New Jersey reenactment regiment. He has worked to build an accurate
representation of a Civil War Field Hospital and has spent a great amount of
time researching the medical services of the Union army during the War. He
lives in Franklin Township and serves as an EMT (Emergency Medical
Technician) with the Franklin Township Fire Department and the NJ Forest
Fire Service, and he is an EMS Division Field Training Officer.
