Default VA Dermatology Clinic

On March 3, 1865, A Month Before The Civil War Ended, President Abraham Lincoln Authorized The First-Ever National Soldiers’ And Sailors’ Asylum To Provide Medical And Convalescent Care For Discharged Members Of The Union Army And Navy Volunteer Forces. The Asylum Was The First Of Its Kind In The World To Provide Civilian Medical Care To Veterans Of Temporary Volunteer Forces.

Two Earlier Soldiers’ Homes, Operated By The U.S. Army And Navy For Veterans Of The Regular Military Forces, Were Very Small And Housed Only Up To 300 Men Each. The National Homes Housed Ten Of Thousands Of Veterans. The National Homes Were Often Called “Soldiers’ Homes” Or “Military Homes.” Initially Only Civil War Soldiers And Sailors Who Served Honorably With The Union Forces—Including U.S. Colored Troops—Were Eligible For Admittance. The First National Home, Now VA’s Oldest Hospital, Opened Near Augusta, Maine, On November 1, 1866. They Provided Medical Care And Long-Term Housing For Thousands Of Civil War Veterans.
