Ambulance wagons waiting at Gettysburg. My Great-Great-Great-Uncle was an ambulance driver who died of typhoid in 1862, in Richmond. Seeing a photograph of the ambulances really puts his life into a little bit of perspective for me.

Washington, D. C. ambulance wagons at Harewood Hospital, Civil War. This picture was taken in 1863 near City Point, Virginia. The picture shows a wagon train of Civil War Ambulances. Battlefield medicine was still in its infancy at this time, and getting injured in combat usually meant dying of infection.
I live in the South Carolina and last year when we went up to Gettysburg for Christmas, it started snowing on Christmas eave and after Christmas eave mass it was dark out and daddy took me, my mom and my sister for a drive through the beautifully decorated, snow covered neighborhoods and through down town Gettysburg. I was the most indescribable experience. I have never experienced Christmas like that before and I will NEVER, EVER forget it!
