WELCOME TO THE

17th CORPS FIELD HOSPITAL


The 17th Corps Field Hospital is a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit corporation in Illinois. We are dedicated to educating the public about Civil War Medicine.



We have educators, RN's, film makers, accountants, first responders, retired science teachers, Cook County Police Officers, and college students in our group. We do medical displays and demonstrations in Northern Illinois and Southern Wisconsin.


Our group is the largest Civil War medical group in Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, and Iowa. We also work with the paramedics at National Reenactments that have 3,000-5,000 people on the field as the medical staff for the First Federal Division of the Blue Grey Alliance.

We are available to speak to private groups, libraries, historical societies, genealogical groups, and schools for a fee.
