Dr. Henry Stewart: Renaissance Man of Gettysburg

Over the course of his life, Henry Stewart came to define what a true Renaissance man was capable of achieving. Medical doctor, chemist, forensic pathologist, meteorologist, engineer, blacksmith, and architect are but some of the occupations this child of the battle went on to practice. Spend an evening delving into the amazing life and legacy of Gettysburg's county doctor and inventor.
