In 1997, the Detached Hospital formally applied for membership in the Brigade of the American Revolution (BAR), one of the premiere umbrella organizations for Revolutionary War reenactments and research. The Detached Hospital attained full membership in that organization in the latter part of 1998. In 1999, the Detached Hospital was one of the founding member units of the BAR’s Southern Department. The Detached Hospital is also proud to be member of the British Brigade, also one of the leading umbrella organizations for Revolutionary War reenactments.
Today, the Detached Hospital continues its mission of research and interpretation to the public by working with various national, state, local and even international historic sites. The Detached Hospital has been to almost all of the original 13 colonies, Canada, and even Puerto Rico. A very limited list of the sites we have worked with is:
We also assist as consultants and actors in various movie and television productions. Hospital members have taken part in the following motion pictures:

The following television productions:
The American Revolution
The Detached Hospital also consulted with and took part in the filming of the introduction films for the National Park Service sites of Moore’s Creek and Guilford Court House.
We also take our demonstrations to local historic groups, schools, or anywhere else where people would like to learn more about the history of early medicine and the role of medicine in the Revolution.
We are a growing and vibrant organization who actively recruits new members. We are a family oriented organization and have historically accurate roles for all potential members. Men are recruited as medical staff members; women are recruited as either women of the hospital or distaff.
