    Of note...Of the men of the 22nd Kentucky I have went through and determined who was who based on their initials used in the document as well as their CSR and record of their injuries.

    Something I had never thought about....

    Page 38 - "Predominance of wounds on the Right Side of the Body. In western warfare, the constant occurrence of battles in the forest, gives predominance to the operations of skirmishers, who deliver their fire usually from the right hand side of the trees that shelter them; in consequence of this, the right hand, arm, and shoulder, and the right thigh, knee, and leg, receive many more wounds than the left."

    Dr. Edmund Andrews (April 22, 1824 – January 22, 1904) Born in Putney Vermont. After earning his BA from the Univerity fo Michigan in 1849, he entered the Medical Department of the University of Michigan as part of its first class. Immediately after receiving his medical degree in 1852, Dr. Andrews became a demonstrator of anatomy, and then a year later was made professor of comparative anatomy. In 1855, he was appointed demonstrator of anatomy in Rush Medical College, but resigned after one year to practice medicine. He was one of the founders of the Chicago Medical College. Dr. Andrews later served as a major and surgeon-in-chief of Camp Douglas and President of the Illinois State Medical Society.
