I HAVE A GR-GR-UNCLE WHO DIED FROM 'MORTAL WOUNDS' RECEIVED ON JAN. 2, 1863 AT THE BATTLE OF STONES RIVER, MURFREESBORO, TN.

HE DIED SEVERAL DAYS LATER.

WHAT WOULD BE CONSIDERED A 'MORTAL' WOUND WITH THE TYPE OF WEAPONS USED IN FIGHTING THEN?

WHAT SORT OF WEAPONS  USED THEN WOULD HAVE CAUSED SUCH INJURIES THAT THE DOCTORS COULD NOT SAVE HIM AND YET HE LIVED FOR SEVERAL DAYS?

THANKS!

MIKKI
