Civil War Medicine Part 1
By Mary L. Bushong
  

1     The battles raged for hours -- sometimes days. As the armies clashed, the line of fighting moved to different places on the battle field. What happened to the injured who were left on the field? That was when the medical corps took over.
 
2     At the start of the Civil War, medicine was still fairly primitive. All doctors were called surgeons. They attended college for just two years of training. Most of that training was from books, just a small amount of time was spent dealing with patients.
 
3     When the war started, there were only about 100 experienced surgeons in the Northern army. The South had one-fourth that number.
