Caption

Military field hospital, US Civil War. This stereographic image shows soldiers in a field hospital with amputation tools and a patient with an injured leg as Zouave soldiers watch. This hospital was located at Fort Monroe, Virginia, USA. The Zouave were a unit of the Union Army, modelled on the French Zouave infantry. Photographed by New York photographer George Stacy during the US Civil War (1861-1865). Over 600,000 soldiers died during the conflict. Although early anaesthetics were available, the standards of medical care, surgical technology, and drugs, were still relatively rudimentary.
