Doctoring the South

Even though rural medicine changed after the Civil War, most physicians still held on to the practice of country orthodox style. This epilogue focuses on the impact of the Civil War on illness and medical care in the South and the continuity of the orthodox style of practice after the war. It also describes how the conflict altered the lives of individual practitioners and how the end of slavery changed the practitioner's routine.

Keywords:   rural medicine, Civil War, physicians, country orthodox style, illness, medical care, orthodoxy, slavery
