The Confederate States Army and Navy Surgeons Association formed in Richmond, Virginia, in August of 1863. Its purpose (as stated in a circular in these papers) was "For the advancement of science – to rescue from oblivion all the important medical and surgical facts developed within the armies of the Confederate States during the late war..." General Samuel P. Moore, former Surgeon General of the Confederacy, served as the association's president. The association apparently ceased to function sometime in the 1880s.
The collection consists of 13 items: 4 item of correspondences; 2 broadsides; 2 sets of meeting minutes; 5 service reports. The service reports, submitted by Confederate surgeons, relate their stations during the Civil War, including Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Manassas, and Richmond, Virginia.
