ster, and it was therefore possible to find the whereabouts or the fate of any patient in a few seconds.
In addition to the general hospitals established for the treatment of patients until they were convalescent, wayside hospitals were established at every important junction-point.
A Federal officer wounded at pine mountain, Georgia—August, 1864
This unusual photograph of an officer still on crutches, emaciated and suffering, was taken in August, 1864, near Pulpit Rock, Lookout Mountain, Tennessee.
It is reproduced here through the courtesy of the officer himself—Major (later Colonel) L. R. Stegman, associated with the editors in the preparation of this work.
In June, 1864, during Sherman's march to Atlanta, he was shot in the thigh, the shot fracturing the bone.
Major Stegman was in command of the Hundred and Second New York, which was attached to the twentieth corps of the Army of the Cumberland.
A wound of this character disabled the victim for many months.
