Actually no, it would have been like Woodrow Wilson where no one was specified.  Playing more counterfactual I assume Stanton probably would have run things.  The succession issue for incapacity wasn't  brought in until the 25th amendment after the Kennedy assasination.


Modern surgeons tell me the answer would be probably no, we'd still be amputating limbs if we were still shooting non-jacketed low velocity Minnie Balls that shattered bone.  I know a tangent to the thread and your point but more evidence that under the circumstances the CW doctors were not total hacksaw happy barbarians as the general public thinks.
