A History of the Military Ambulance from the Napoleonic Wars through World War I


John S. Haller Jr.

Battlefield Medicine: A History of the Military Ambulance from the Napoleonic Wars through World War I

“Guy Hasegawa, a pharmacist and one of the nation’s leading experts on Civil War medicine, has uncovered details of a forgotten chapter in the history of American weapons development. . . . Villainous Compounds is a significant and fresh contribution to the historiography both of the Civil War and of science and technology. Hasegawa’s clear prose and engaging style will appeal to Civil War aficionados with little grounding in chemistry as well as chemists with scant knowledge of the war. Battlefield trampers and armchair historians alike will gain new insights into the scientific and moral underpinnings of America’s earliest attempts at developing weapons of mass destruction.” —Bill J. Gurley, University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences, College of Pharmacy

Jason H. Silverman

is the Ellison Capers Palmer Jr. Professor of History at Winthrop University in Rock Hill, South Carolina. He is the author, coauthor, or coeditor of ten books, including Immigration in the American South, 1864–1895: A Documentary History of the Southern Immigration Conventions and A Rising Star of Promise: The Civil War Odyssey of David Jackson Logan, 17th South Carolina Infantry, 1861–1864.

“Two subjects of enduring interest to all who study the American past are the history of immigration and the political ideology of Abraham Lincoln. Until now, no book-length study has examined these subjects together. . . . The result is a compelling interpretation of nineteenth-century American history with important implications for our understanding of diversity today and for the prospects of American democracy in the century to come.”

“In this excellent untold story, Jason Silverman narrates Abraham Lincoln’s views on, interactions with, and politics of the foreign born in his time. . . . The author captures Lincoln’s character as in Lincoln’s 1855 letter to his friend Joshua Speed, ‘I am not a Know-Nothing [anti-immigrant]. How could I be?’ This is a tale worth telling, and Silverman does so exceedingly well.” —Frank J. Williams, founding chair of the Lincoln Forum

I started taping legs when I was two, wire jutting out my dolls’ bendable limbs. Each afternoon, glued to the tube’s fake truth, I watched—everyone died in soft focus, doctors detected disease from one cough stuck like a bone in the throat. A troubled forehead longed for a cool palm, a toe caught in the bathtub spout loosened with soap. Label your babies. Start each sentence with I don’t know how to tell you this. Healing’s a trick of white sheets and metal paddles rubbed flat together, a jump-start to the chest. Quick, doctor. I want you to test my flexed knees. I need a sponge bath, stat. You’re losing me.
