Content Description: 

This fascinating book provides a good overview of the hospital system established by the confederacy and looks in depth at how the biggest hospital in the system (and reputedly the largest in the world) was created and maintained in Richmond, Virginia. Under the guidance of Dr. James Brown McCaw, Chimborazo became the model for other hospitals and innovated (by necessity) in coping with the overwhelming number of casualties that flooded into the Confederacy's capital from the battlefields of Virginia. This book should be of interest for local residents as well as many health care workers who will identify with the problems besetting their forebears and intrigued by the solutions they found.
