These surgical sets are presented to help differentiate pre- & post- Civil War surgery sets from those produced during the Civil War.  All the surgical sets on this page are 'post-Civil War' and of course would not have been available during the Civil War.  It is important to differentiate the style and composition of these sets from earlier sets to avoid mislabeling them as 'Civil War era'.  They are not Civil War era, they are post-Civil War.  They may contain a maker's left-over instruments which were created or purchased during or in some cases before the War.  Instruments which evolved during the War were carried over to the post-War era and that is why you see post-War sets with military instruments like bullet forceps, male urinary sounds, etc., especially from the major instrument suppliers like Tiemann, Snowden, and Hernstein.  Dr. Michael Echols.

 

View these surgery sets as post-Civil War comparatives for identification purposes

(All sets on this site are original, contain the correct instruments, and all instruments in a given set are by the same maker.  These are not 'put-together' sets and the sets do not contain substitution instruments.  If incorrect instruments were included in the set when purchased for this collection, then the incorrect instruments were removed and replaced with the correct instruments when possible.)
