Exhibit

A Black Man can stop a bullet as good as a White Man

"Once let the black man get upon his person the brass letter, U.S., let him get an eagle on his button, and a musket on his shoulder and bullets in his pocket, there is no power on earth that can deny that he has earned the right to citizenship."

   Frederick Douglass  

The Scene:  

(Full-scale)

Surgeon Alexander T. Augusta has a blood-stained, white apron over his blue, United States Army Surgeon uniform.  His coat is removed and his sleeves are rolled up as he begins to work on a Black Private of the 7th U.S.C.T.  The private is on a makeshift table, covered with a gum blanket.  A concerned White Junior Officer of the 7th U.S.C.T. looks on the scene.  This scene shows the interrelationship of White and Black People during the time of the Civil War.  This scene is meant to build a sense of community in Maryland by providing a model for advocating tolerance through cultural diversity by means of the common bond of history.  The background of the diorama includes numerous details of the practice of medicine during the time of the Civil War.
