Dear Buford Trooper:

A couple of suggestions:

-- The main research branch of the New York Public Library at 42nd & 5th Ave. holds all the Sanitary Commission records for the Northeast. Unfortunately this is hundreds of box feet of unindexed materials. But I'm assuming there are hospital logs among them. You should also look at the various histories of the Sanitary Commissions, as they mention buildings taken over for hospitals.

Also go to the website of the Society for Women in the Civil War, whttp://www.swcw.org  In 2007, I think, they held their conference at a hospital site outside Philadelphia. You should write the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, MD.

As I remember the German church still standing on the Antietam battlefield was used as a hospital.

Hope this helps,
CKL
