1862 Blog Casey Carter

Dear Diary:

I currently do not know what day it is, so I will not put a date. All I know is that is 1862, and I am missing my leg. During a battle in Antietam, a bullet struck me in the leg. I fell unconscious, and when I woke up, I was in a hospital. I called for a nurse, and she said that I would be getting my leg amputated! I asked her if there was any other option, but she said that if it wasn't removed, the wound would get infected and I would die. A few hours later, I was taken to a room where a doctor put a rag on my face, and then I blacked out. I woke up to excruciating pain as if my leg was on fire. I would have thought so too if I could feel my leg once the pain stopped. I have been hobbling around on a pair of crutches, for the last 3 days in this putrid hospital. The only thing that overpowers the men's screams, is horrible stench of the dead. Dear Lord, please allow me to get out of this, and allow me to see my wife and kids again. I feel I have been through enough fighting to last a thousand lifetimes.
