Medical and Report of Death of Corporal L. C. Griffin, 8th North Carolina Infantry.

Corporal L. C. Griffin, Co. D, 8th North Carolina, was wounded in the left knee by a piece of shell, at Winchester, July 19, 1864. He was conveyed to hospital at Richmond, where the limb was amputated at the lower third of the femur by Dr. Joseph Jones. The patient died in February, 1865. The specimen, a portion of the stump four and a half inches long, was contributed to the Museum by Acting Assistant Surgeon F. Schafhirt. It constitutes number 3141 of the Surgical Section, and exhibits a prodigious involucrum. The bone is exceedingly hyperostosed, measuring three and a half inches in diameter at the extremity. The extremity and central portions are carious, and a slight sequestrum is contained. A representation of the specimen will be found in FIG. 4 of PLATE LXX, opposite p. 242. [Not Included]
