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."
