Henkel Exhibit- The Henkel Physicians

The Woodbridge Library will host for three weeks, September 22nd to October 3rd, the Henkel Exhibit- The Henkel Physicians: a Family’s Life in Letters.  The Exhibit “offers a glimpse into the daily lives of men of medicine in Virginia’s Shenandoah Valley during the 19th century. While it documents the working lives of physicians, it also illuminates social and home life and how one family experienced the Civil War. Covering more than a century of life in the Shenandoah Valley during which four members of the remarkable Henkel family practiced in the same area, this exhibition features a selection of writings that vividly illustrate the writer’s personality and their experiences as physicians. The letters cover local events, professional jealousies, the national crisis of the Civil war and finish with the dramatic testimony of the Henkel physicians in a murder trial.”
