Jewett Patent Legs for North Carolina Amputees-- Part 1

Back on January 7th, I wrote about this weekend's upcoming 149th anniversary of the Second Battle of Fort Fisher, North Carolina. The general theme of the commemoration is "Always Near the Front, With Instruments & Tournequets: The medical service at Fort Fisher." Much emphasis will be placed on Civil War medicine, along with re-eneactments, cannon firings and authors. //// Also, a new exhibit will open called "An Emminent Work of Justice and Charity." In it, they will feature only the third-known Jewett Patent Leg in existence. //// --Old Secesh
