The January 13th screening will be followed by a historical discussion led by John V. Quarstein, Director of the USS Monitor Center & Foundation. Due to demand, a January 14th screening has been scheduled, which will NOT include a discussion following the show.
“Based on true stories, Mercy Street takes viewers behind the front lines of the Civil War and into the lives of a diverse cast of characters – doctors, nurses, contraband laborers and Southern loyalists – who intersect in the chaotic world of the Mansion House Hospital in Union-occupied Alexandria, Virginia.”Read more and reserve FREE tickets
