?? General Dan Sickles leg – hit by a cannon ball near the Trostle Farm, during the fighting on the second day of Gettysburg, and amputated. Always controversial, and a bit of a showman, General Sickles donated his limb to the Army’s Medical Museum in Washington DC. For several years he apparently paid his leg a visit, on the anniversary of its loss. The bones and a representative cannon ball are now displayed at the National Museum of Health and Medicine. #war #history #vintage #retro #guns #gun #military #battle #warrior #warriors #combat #campaign #battles #civilwar #uscivilwar #acw #usa #america #csa #usarmy #army
