Debris of Battle: The Wounded of Gettysburg
Gerard A. Patterson (Author)
Out of stock. Delivery time unknown.
DescriptionWhen the battle at Gettysburg ended, over 21,000 Union and Confederate wounded lay helpless in the shattered woods and decimated fields surrounding the small town. Amazingly, an unprecedented number of volunteers from both the North and South, including the U.S. Sanitary Commission and the U.S. Christian Commission, soon descended upon the isolated town, bringing with them much-needed medical attention, supplies, and food. This is the story of the aftermath of a battle, in all its dreadful intensity. - The fate of the wounded - Civil War hospitals examined
