Medical Record

CASE. - Private G. A. Arnold, Co. G, 2d Vermont Volunteers, aged 21 years, was wounded, at the battle of the Wilderness, Virginia, May 5th, 1864, by a conoidal musket ball, which caused a wound of the scalp in the right parietal region. He was admitted to the Harewood Hospital, Washington, D. C., and, on May 15th, sent to Mower Hospital, Philadelphia. On the following day hæmorrhage occurred from the parietal branch of the temporal artery, which was controlled by compression. On May 31st, the wound had nearly healed, but the patient suffered from headache. He was returned to duty on July 26th, 1864.
