A Manual of Military Surgery, S. D. Gross, 1861

A rare Civil War period medical manual. This copy was in the private library of Ralph Happel, the National Park Service historian at the Fredericksburg park for many years.

The original owner, Richard J. Grigson, graduated from Iowa Medical College in 1858 but, oddly enough, is not recorded as serving in the Civil War.
