The National Museum of Civil War Medicine in Frederick is promoting the PBS television series "Mercy Street" after playing a consulting role in the show's production.

The museum is holding the first viewing party Thursday at the Frederick Visitor Center.

The fictional series portrays a Union Army hospital in Alexandria, Virginia. Museum Executive Director David Price says the museum helped ensure that medical procedures depicted in the show were accurate.
