J - that's an interesting story. I've read several accounts of soldiers going to extreme measures to save their limbs: one cannot even imagine the power of the desire to keep oneself in one piece whilst in a field hospital.

I think there's several people I'd really like to talk to (I guess everyone gets Lincoln, by default). I'd like to ask McCellan about his hesitancy whilst in command, but doubt I'd get much out of him. Seward would also make for interesting political conversation.

However, I think I'd find just floating from campfire to campfire listening to the soldiers' late night conversations to be an education in itself.
