We actually had a thread on this way, way back. I think Forrest "won"....although I could be wrong.....and I'm not sure if we counted the Gould wound or not.Joshua Chamberlain was wounded 6 times in battle and John Hood at least 3 times. Which other Civil War Generals suffered multiple battle wounds? Does Chamberlain hold the record at 6 times?
General Walker,Maj. Gen. William H. T. Walker from Augusta, GA was wounded so many times he was called "Ole Shot Pouch" before the Civil War even started. After graduating from West Point he served in the 6th US Infantry and was wounded in the neck, shoulder, chest, left arm, and leg at Lake Okeechobee, FL. He served in the Mexican War as captain and was wounded at the Battle of Churubusco and again at the Battle of Molino del Rey in the back. In the ACW, as a division commander in Hardee's Corps, he was killed at the Battle of Atlanta.
