Great topic, in my book.

I've wondered about this particular "what if" question often, but have yet to make the time to put together a well-informed opinion.

As I recall, ASJ bled to death from a shot in his foot or lower leg.  His death was avoidable;  had his personal surgeon been with him, the surgeon could have stopped the bleeding.  But, ASJ had insisted his surgeon stay behind to care for wounded Yankee prisoners.  His concern for the wounded enemy cost him his life.
