Step through the doors of the Mansion House Hospital for their annual Hands on History Tent! Children and their families are invited to explore the history that inspired Mercy Street through various crafts and hands-on activities. Visitors will have the chance to meet a Union Army surgeon and learn about medical tools and equipment from the era. One brave volunteer will have the opportunity to have an operation performed on them! This event is designed for children ages 3-12 but all are welcome!
