Wounded Civil War Surgical Card Collection (1860s) “The Army Medical Museum’s staff mined incoming reports for ‘interesting’ cases — such as a gunshot would to the ‘left side of scalp, denuding skull’ or ‘gunshot would, right elbow with gangrene supervening’ — and cases that demonstrated the use of difficult surgical techniques, such as an amputation by circular incision or resection of the ‘head of humerus and three inches of the left clavicle.’” (via BrainPicking via Hidden Treasures)

Statement from Neil Armstrong’s family: “For those who may ask what they can do to honor Neil, we have a simple request. Honor his example of service, accomplishment and modesty, and the next time you walk outside on a clear night and see the moon smiling down at you, think of Neil Armstrong and give him a wink.”
