Men, women and children living on the fringes of Virginia's frontier faced danger on a daily basis. The risk of being wounded was great and the slightest cut or burn could easily lead to death. The knowledge of medical treatment was invaluable but often scarce. Captain Martin's company surgeon has arrived at the station to evaluate the men and share his knowledge of health and healing. Program presentations Saturday at 11 a.m. and 3 p.m., Sunday 1 p.m.
