COMING UP

They couldnM-Ft vote, they had few, if any, legal protections, and formal education was available to only a sliver of them. But many black Americans fought in the Civil War, and it turns out the Union Army contained several black physicians. Some were educated in Canada, but others had medical training from American universities, according to new research conducted by Dr. Robert Slawson, a former associate professor of radiation oncology at University of Maryland Medical School. He focused on nine black doctors and will discuss his work tonight at 7 p.m. at the Baltimore Civil War Museum. Tickets are $6 and include admission to the museum. Advance reservations are not required. The Baltimore Civil War Museum is at 601 President St. Call 410-685-3750, ext. 321. M-y Annie Linske
