The Injuries and Illnesses of the War
Some of the illnesses were the measles, mumps, and or chicken pox. Some injuries while in battle were very severe. Some got shot more than once in major arteries. Others were hit with cannon balls or cannon casing. Long and thick deep cuts hurt and throbbed and bled. So if you didn't get a illnesses your going to probably get an injury. I got the chicken pocks and I was glad to get that because that is a disease that can be treated and can be terminated. But some are just saying your going to go through lots of pain before you die.
