Don't exactly want to say cool pics, Zuzah, but they illustrate defiance of one of the standard "givens" during the war: that the closer to the torso an amputation is, the less chance there was of continued life.

That is, one could more certainly live after the amputation of a limb at the elbow or knee, but one's chances of survival from an amputation at the shoulder or hip was kind of iffy.

The things these men went through. Amazing!!! Words can not express.
And when I followed the first link I saw not only the CW amputees, but also the pictures of the young Marines who had lost a limb or even two ...
We must remind ourselves, it is not over, still young men (and maybe women) are paying a high price for the well-being of our society. War is terrible.

Will CWT be setting up a page to post pics of our Civil War ancestors in the future? Or any other Civil War related pics?
