While waiting for another order to march, the whole brigade got ordered out on parade.
“What’s up?” “Cain’t a man be allowed to rest?”
“Form two lines,” the sergeants bellowed.
Two lines, 75 paces apart, faced each other.
“You are here to witness the punishment of a deserter.”
The moment men heard that talk dried up.
Eight soldiers escorted the offender, bayonets fixed. Faces showed solemn sympathy. A provost marshal carried out the demonstration to send a message to any men considering desertion. The offender marched down the aisle, his head shaved, hat in hand, buttons cut off his coat and the letter D branded on his hip. Not a cheer was given. Nor any jeers.

Mother Francis felt the urge to feed and clothe him. Men such as he appeared at Sisters of Mercy’s door asking for charity. He was rail-thin. She had never seen a man with longer arms or bigger feet. Lincoln’s deportment sorely disadvantaged him, for he stood thin-chested and stoop-shouldered, more like a scarecrow than a candidate for U.S. Senate.

Most folks [who came to the debate] had never seen Lincoln before. Subdued titters and sideways glances confirmed disappointment.

At first he didn’t show all that is in him, but lawyers who tried cases against him said they can never tell what Lincoln is going to do until the moment he does it.

Surgeon General from April 1862 to August 1863, Dr. Hammond sought a number of positive changes. Hammond banned the use of the mercury compound calomel for treatment of wounded soldiers. Mercury (which caused vomiting) debilitated the already weakened soldiers, and Hammond's judgment was subsequently proven accurate. Friction between Secretary of War Edwin Stanton and Dr. Hammond resulted in a court-martial. Hammond was questionably found guilty of charges relating to irregularities in the purchase of medical supplies and dismissed from the army.

Dr. Alvin Satterhwaite served in the Battles of Chancellorsville, Gettysburg, Bristow Station, Mine Run, Morton's Ford and Grant's entire campaign in Va” March 1863. Wilderness, Spottsylvania, Cold Harbor, Petersburg, Reams Station, Fort Hell, Hatchers Run, etc.
After the war he resettled at Mariners Harbor on Staten Island, NY and continued his practice of medicine until 1872 and died in 1873 at the age of 34.

"I will write to Dr. Satterthwait [sic] to indorse strongly a furlough for Elisha Stewart. He ought to have it, and be honored in Alloways Creek as a soldier who has never been to the rear in this arduous campaign." Cornelia Hancock, City Point, VA, Jan. 6th, 1865
Even when a soldier needed a medical furlough, his commander often kept him at regimental or division hospitals near battlefields, which lessened the chance he deserted or got prematurely discharged by some, "soft-hearted medical officer." In many instances Civil War soldiers had to wait until they were “past cure” before being allowed to go to the rear or home on furlough.

This was the best and most comfortable home improvement process I have experienced. From the first visit through the final inspection everything went smooth and on time. The initial meeting with our Sales Consultant Russ Downs was terrific. He was very thorough and presented many good options. We chose the best one for us based on the guidance we received from Russ. He knew the products and had very valuable insight that assisted in our final decision. The installation team of John and Victor arrived on time the day of the install and worked very hard through the day to complete the job. They were both very good at what they did including the work site prep and clean up after the job. They also took time to walk me through the new furnace A/C humidifier and thermostat components. I would highly recommend this company to anyone looking for great service and product delivery.
