Actually any wound could be considered "Mortal" given the lack of hygiene that was practiced by the medicos of the era. My ggg uncle got shot in the leg at Petersburg, had his leg amputated and died 3 days later from complications, read Infection...
some men got infections, some didn't.. those who did stood a higher chance of death from their wounds than those who did not..
