Description

From the mid 1800’s to the 1940’s, one of the first forms of medicine to reach frontier America was the traveling Medicine Show. Part entertainment, part scam, part real medicine, these “shows” traveled the west with their miracle cures. The presenter will give you an example of what these shows were like, followed by a question and answer period.
