U.S.A. Hosp. Dept.

Also known as the U.S.A. Hospital Department
U.S.A. Hospt'l Dept.
United States Army Hospital Department

The U.S.A. Hosp. Department is a branch of the U.S. Army Medical Department and is normally associated with the Hospital Department during the Civil War years. However the U.S.A. Hosp. Dept. was formed many years before the war began. According to many historians of Civil War medicine there were Hospital Departments units found as early as the Revolutionary War. As a matter of fact Mary Gillett reports that the Hospital Department was in fact formed by declaration of the President of the United States, George Washington, in 1775. The department was formed to supply medicines and medical personnel, such as surgeons, to the battlefield. Personally I have seen material stamped with the U.S.A. Hosp. Dept. logo as early as 1832 and as late as 1873.

For examples of the logos associated with the U.S.A. Hosp. Dept. please refer to the links at the bottom of this page.
