Join the National Museum of Civil War Medicine for guided tours of the Pry
House on Antietam National Battlefield every Saturday at 1:00 PM from June 22
through November 30. The house became a headquarters and a hospital during
the bloodiest single day in American history – September 17, 1862. As the
Battle of Antietam raged, decisions were made on this historic property that
shaped the lives of soldiers, surgeons, and civilians.

Our guided tours will explore the history of the house and the impact of the
battle on civilians, especially the Pry family. The Pry House hosted the
commander of the Army of the Potomac General George B. McClellan and served
as headquarters for the Medical Department under Major Jonathan Letterman,
Medical Director of the Army of the Potomac. Following the battle, President
Lincoln paid a visit to the Pry house.
