Description

Indiana in the Civil War: Doctors, Hospitals, and Medical Care is a unique visual history of the people and places most vital to the medical care of Indiana troops during America's darkest hour. From the guerilla warfare in Missouri to the campaigns of the Army of the Potomac, Indiana men and women struggled to care for the sick and injured. Often finding even the best physicians could do little to cure diseases that were more deadly than enemy fire, doctors, nurses, and patients explain in their own words how they combated disease and survived horrific wounds during the War Between the States. Even with the strong support of Indiana's governor, Oliver P. Morton, caregivers still faced daunting obstacles, including court martials, their own disease and injury, and military red tape. Showcasing almost 200 vintage images and utilizing newspaper accounts written during the period by surgeons, patients, and hospital observers, this book provides new insight on Civil War medical care.
