The Bangor Museum and History Center in Bangor, Maine has launched an interactive online civil war exhibit featuring Augustus Hamlin's medicine chest from the Civil War. The address is http://www.bangormuseum.org/medicine-chest.html . Each item in the chest can be hovered over to see a close up image, and can be clicked on to get an in-depth description of what the medicines and items in the chest were used for.

EDIT: I had to put a space after period on the web link. The link would not have worked before. Very Sorry!

The link is temporarily broken. Please use http://www.bangormuseum.org/medicine-chest-online-exhibit.html
for the time being. I asked for title to be changed while I was offsite and was misunderstood and the URL was changed.

You might want to send someone over to the Fort at No. 4 in Charleston, NH. The fort is actually a reproduction of the original French and Indian War period fort at No. 4(which is today Charleston, NH), but strangely enough the visitor center/gift shop has had on display a book on Civil War medicine and a few items there of. Don't know if any of that would be of interest or help to your museum.

Enjoyed the viewing of the medicines, their treatments, side effects and general history,  etc. Thanks for sharing.
