Apparently, it was very painful as well. Do you think it partially accounts for his crotchety nature?
I should think it wouldn't help! Varina remarked on having to deal with him when he was being imperious, and it wasn't fun. I suspect it had a good deal to do with his having to do everything himself - a lot of times people with illnesses are very controlling.

Interesting, that one is new to me.
Strangely, I came across it on Pinterest orginally. When this thread popped up I searched images on the internet and found this one belonging to the Civil War Museum which I assume to be authentic.
