First, Do No Harm


Author(s):
Abstract:
During the Civil War, the Confederate army was lacking for many provisions and services, none as dire as the lack of medical personnel and supplies. There were only 8,000 Confederate doctors and only two ambulances per regiment of 2,000 troops. Of the medical staff, many lacked formal training and were unprepared to treat gunshot wounds or trauma.
