Click to enlargePhantom Pain: North Carolina's <br>Artificial-Limbs Program <br>for Confederate Veterans

Ansley Herring Wegner

Amputations constituted roughly 75 percent of all operations performed during the Civil War. This pioneering study examines North Carolina’s program to supply and fit its Confederate amputees with artificial arms and legs.

Includes an index to records in the North Carolina State Archives related to Civil War amputees, artificial-limb recipients, and veterans who requested commutation because they were unable to use an artificial limb.

Paperbound. Pp. xi, 261. Illus. Index. (2004)
