Civil War Veteran Jacob Miller of the 9th Indiana Infantry was shot in the forehead on Sept.19th 1863 at Brock Field at Chickamauga. He survived the shot, later writing that he had a constant reminder of the Chickamauga Battlefield and the constant pain he suffered from that wound.
A rare image . . . from the look of these soldiers this is a late civil War photo of a battle-hardened company. A company would have started with around 100 men, there were no replacements. After a hard campaign between caualties and disease this is what might be left . . .
