CASE 355.— …Private Lafayette Hogan, Co. G, 14th Tennessee, was admitted into Lincoln Hospital, Washington, December 23, 1862, with a gunshot wound of the right knee. Amputation at the lower third of the thigh was performed on the day of admission. The patient died January 1, 1863, from hæmorrhage. Assistant Surgeon G. M. McGill, U. S. A., forwarded the pathological preparation (Specimen 1891, Section I) to the Army Medical Museum. It consists of "a ligamentous preparation of the bones of the right knee, except the patella, amputated in the lowest fourth, apparently for a contusion just above and behind the outer condyle." (Cat. Surg. Sect., A. M. M., 1866, p. 338.)
