Using previously unavailable records, Welsh tells the story of two Confederate hospitals in operation during the Civil War. These sanatoriums primarily treated patients belonging to the Army of Tennessee, many of whom suffered from a shortage of beds, too few surgeons, and the forced relocation of the hospital itself. A listing of more than 18,000 patients¨accessible through the accompanying CD-ROM¨reveals additional information about the diseases, diagnoses, and general hardships that faced the infirm.
