Free Film Screening at The Duke Mansion - How the Story of MASH Began in Charlotte

When: Sun., Nov. 8, 3 p.m. 2015

An idea first floated at The Duke Mansion in Charlotte made military history in World War II. A visiting general and local physicians imagined a portable hospital that could move close to the line of battle. The pioneering 38th Evacuation Hospital became the model for MASH units during the Korean War. Join us for a screening of the documentary, "If They Could See Us Now: The Story of Charlotte’s 38th Evacuation Hospital." Dr. Brian Madison Jones, history professor and dean at Johnson C. Smith University, will introduce the film. Sponsored by The Duke Mansion and Levine Museum.

Price: Free; RSVP required
