It began as a way for students to break in their combat boots, but has since evolved into a full-day military history lesson. First year medical and nursing students shoulder load bearing gear as they navigate six miles of countryside across the Antietam National Battlefield. The students are divided into companies and set out for landmarks where members of USU faculty and Civil War re-enactors await. At each designated station, medical experts give the historical facts of the extraordinary events that took place at each station, including the trials medical personnel face in the midst of raging battle.
