Doctors did not understand infection, and did little to prevent it. It was a time before antiseptics, and a time when there was no attempt to maintain sterility during surgery. No antibiotics were available, and minor wounds could easily become infected, and hence fatal.
While the typical soldier was at very high risk of being shot and killed in combat, he faced an even greater risk of dying from disease. Twice as many men died of disease than of gunshot wounds in the Civil War. Dysentery, measles, small pox, pneumonia, and malaria were the soldier's greatest enemy. The overall poor hygiene in camp, the lack of adequate sanitation facilities, the cold and lack of shelter and suitable clothing, the poor quality of food and water, and the crowded condition of the camps made the typical camp a literal breeding ground for disease.
Conditions, and resulting disease, were even worse for Civil War prisoners, who were held in the most miserable of conditions. In order to try and curb these appalling conditions in camp, and the resulting rampant disease, the Sanitary Commission was formed. The Sanitary Commission tried to educate the army on proper sanitation techniques to help stem the spread of disease. The sanitary commission report issued in was widely disseminated, and included many guidelines to improve sanitation and reduce disease.
While soldiers were at risk of disease, they also faced great peril in battle. The Civil War was a very bloody affair. More men died at the Battle of Antietam than any other day in American History. The casualties at Antietam were twice the casualties suffered at D-Day. Part of the reason for these horrific casualty statistics is that the Civil War was the first American War in which Rifled barrels were extensively used.
The rifled barrel significantly increased the range at which you could accurately hit a target. Despite this fact, the armies the Union Army in particular continued to use Napoleonic battle tactics. These tactics would send large forces of infantry against entrenched opponents. When an entrenched opponent was armed with smoothbore muskets, these Napoleonic tactics could work.
The pinpoint accuracy of the new rifled muskets, however, would allow the entrenched combatants to begin to thin the ranks of the advancing infantry at a very great range, and effectively decimate them before they could reach the entrenchments. The failure of the commanders to realize this fact, combined with similar advances in artillery, led to untold casualties and carnage in the war. Littlestown G Family dining and homestyle cooking.
