Richmond and Washington During the War

[George A Townsend]




War, Invention, Medical Practitioners

    Amongst those who benefited from the corruption which pervaded public life during the American Civil War are the 'Inventors [who] piled the arsenal grounds with motley models of tents, knapsacks, rifles, and projectiles' (95), and the 'Physicians, [who,] catching the infection, thieved in medicines' (96).
