Overview

Excerpt from A Manual of Military Surgery, for the Use of Surgeons in the Confederate Army: With an Appendix of the Rules and Regulations of the Medical Department of the Confederate Army

As the strength of an army depends more upon the health and physical development of the soldier than in mere nunibers, the hygiene of camps and the susceptibility of soldiers to disease, has long been a worthy study for mili tary leaders. When men are taken from civil life, where they are accustomed to think and act for themselves, and are gathered together as sol diers, the very act of acknowledgment or mus tering in, deprives them of all liberty of action, and makes them dependent upon their superior officers. They must now live after a formula With its drills, labors, fatigues, privations, expos ures, guard duties, night watchings and rigid discipline. This new life, which is so.difi'erent from his former habits, establishes a new era.
