Hospitals
Posted on: 7/26/2017 1:45:58 PM
I'm hoping someone can help me.

One of the descendants of a 136th NY Infantry soldier says that in the pension records she has of her ancestor, that he was in Hospital #52 at Gettysburg.

I have Greg Coco's book, but do not see anything about the hospitals being numbered.

Does anyone know where I might find out this information, or if you know which hospital was #52?

Thank you!

Ginny,

Army order #52 was the "Guide for the Care of Wounded".

So it could be that he was in Hospital "under Order #52".

Trevor,

Hmmm. That's a thought.

I also happened to go back through Coco's book and discovered that HE numbered the hospitals. No. 52 would have bee the J. Henry Garlach House on Baltimore Street. Since the 136th NY Infantry wasn't too far from there, perhaps that's where this soldier had been brought. Then again, perhaps if I reread Coco's book, I will find the answer!

Thank you!

Hi Ginny,

Here is a site that lists the hospitals at Gettysburg, after the battle. As we know most of them were churches and private residences, farms & such!

Thanks. I don't see the J. Henry Garlach house listed, however.
