The carnage that was caused by weapons introduced during the American Civil War forced doctors to make advances in medicine that might have taken another 25 years to develop had the conflict not been fought. "In many ways, the battlefield was the birthplace of modern emergency medicine," said George Wunderlich, executive director of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, Md., who also oversees the Pry House Field Hospital Museum on Antietam National Battlefield.

Albert H. “Big Al” Cohen, 89, of Frederick, Md., died Friday, Aug. 26, 2011, at his residence. He was the husband of the late Etta Fleisher Cohen, who died March 29, 2008. Born Aug. 12, 1922, in Frederick, a son of the late James Robert Cohen and Rose Harrison Cohen, he grew up in Hagerstown and graduated from Hagerstown High School, then moved back to Frederick. He then served in the U.S. Army in World War II from 1942 to 1946, as a captain in the U.S. Army's 90th Infantry Corps of Engineers, where his courage earned him a Purple Heart, a Silver Star and a Bronze Star.

SOUTH MOUNTAIN BATTLEFIELD - The theft of artifacts is being investigated at a second national park in the local area, according to the National Park Service. Seventy-six holes were discovered at Fox Gap on the Washington County-Frederick County line on Jan. 17, said Chief Ranger Robert Gray at the Harpers Ferry Center. The holes could have been a couple of months old, he said. A similar case was reported at Harpers Ferry National Historical Park grounds in late January. Park officials are following leads from tips on that case, Gray said.

Rooting for an old friend to get back into the lineup By John League A business friend of mine is about ready to retire, and I asked him what he would miss most when he stopped working. He told me that the one thing he loved about his job were the conversations he had with employees. Not during meetings. But the casual talk you have about your wife, your kids, your hobbies. The conversations we have at the coffee pot and copying machine. Where you get to know folks.

Friday will be a sad day for Lynn “Ed” Hull. That's when G. Gordon Liddy, Hull's favorite conservative radio talk show host, signs off the air for the last time. Hull, 64, a military retiree and regular caller to “The G. Gordon Liddy Show,” realized a dream when he was invited to meet Liddy in person on Monday's show. Hull said he and Liddy talked during the first 20 minutes of the show, mostly about how bullets are manufactured. “He seemed to know a lot about it,” Hull said.

At a time when women were not allowed to travel without male companions to battlefields or tend to men who were not their relatives, Clara Barton nursed and comforted the wounded and dying on Civil War battlefields. It was at the Battle of Antietam that Barton, who was to become known as the Angel of the Battlefield and who would go on to found the American Red Cross, would have her first experience on a battlefield on which bullets were flying. Before that, Barton campaigned for about a year, collecting supplies while she waited, before she received permission from Col. Daniel Rucker, assistant chief quartermaster for the U.S. Army in charge of the Washington Depots, to assist at battle sites, said Susan Rosenvold, superintendent of the Clara Barton's Missing Soldiers Office, a satellite of the National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick, Md. Rucker supplied Barton with wagons and assistants, and she loaded a wagon with medical supplies, most secured from local Ladies Aid associations, and headed to Sharpsburg from her Washington, D.C., home, said Rosenvold, who recently was awarded the Save Historic Antietam Foundation (SHAF)
