A while latter I walked by and he had a cigar in his mouth and a bottle of beer in his hand. I am not sure how period correct this was. It seems like Civil War soldiers would have known smoking while drinking in bed is dangerous.
They might not have cared. :wink: After all, Dan Sickles himself lit a cigar when he was carried off the field at Gettysburg after getting wounded. And according to this post he drank three cups of coffee while waiting for the docs.
