CASE.—Private Harvey Platt, Co. A, 7th Indiana Volunteers, aged 25 years, was wounded at the battle of Spottsylvania Court House, May 12th, 1864, by a conoidal musket ball which fractured the skull. In the same engagement, he received a wound of the right leg. He was admitted to the hospital of the 4th division, Fifth Corps; thence was sent to the Mount Pleasant hospital at Washington on the 16th, and was transferred, on the 18th, to McKim's Mansion Hospital, Baltimore. After several other transfers, he was finally admitted into hospital No. 4, at Madison, Wisconsin, on September 1st, 1864, and discharged from service on January 20th, 1865, and pensioned. Pension Examiner M. H. Harding states that the patient is disqualified for manual labor during the warm season, owing to vertigo and pain in the head, which seriously impair his health. He rates his disability three-fourths.
