A new question has popped up during my research process:

Does anyone know of any books, websites, etc. that would list known medical conditions and diseases during the 1860s? Whenever I try a search for this I keep getting complications that killed soldiers once they had already been wounded.

To help clarify: In the play I'm writing the one character is a Civil War surgeon/doctor and through a strange rift in time, he and a modern day character meet in an elevator. I wanted the modern character to start to suffer from a disease or condition that the Civil War doctor could identify or maybe even attempt to treat, but I'm having a hard time isolating which dieseases/conditions were known and documented during that time.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated as is all the help you all have already bestowed.

Cory
