CASE. - Lieutenant Henry Gilmore, Co. A, 17th Vermont Volunteers, aged 32 years, received, at the battle of Spottsylvania?, Virginia, May 12th, 1864, a gunshot flesh wound of the head. He was treated in a field hospital until May 19th, when he was sent to the Campbell Hospital, Washington, D. C. On admission, the wound was in a bad condition; the temporal bone was exposed to view, and the tissues were sloughing and inclined to gangrene. On May 21st, hæmorrhage occurred from the temporal artery. Acting Assistant Surgeon F. W. Kelly, ligated the artery in its continuity. No untoward symptoms occurred. On August 15th, Lieutenant Gilmore was transferred to the Officers' Hospital, at Annapolis, Maryland, and, on September 6th, 1864, he was returned to duty. Surgeon A. F. Sheldon, U.S.V., records the case.
