Biography

My great-grandfather, Lorenzo M. Atwood was attached to the Sixth Infantry, Company A, during the civil war. He was wounded in the battle of the Wilderness.

He was shot in the jaw on the first day of battle and the surgeons didn't think he would survive. They left him, with the bullet in his face for three days before they would operate. He, himself held the pan under his jaw while they scraped the bone.

Lorenzo, died from that wound many years later1, when cancer sit in. From the time of the wound, until his death, he would have a crooked smile.

I have, to this day, the bullet they took out of his face and also his discharge papers from the service, stating that the reason for the discharge, from wounds in battle.
