As regards my response to Pvt Clewell, about three responses above, where I confused Pickett's and Sickles' names:

I am finding it very interesting, being seriously medicated for pain right now, that I become so confused and also so unaware of how confused I am.  It makes me think of this subject in a new way.  Especially JBHood, whom was noted for being "moody" and sometimes "unconcerned", during major battles.

I haven't read much about Ewell's being seriously medicated on the job, but it seems JBHood certainly was, his amputation was much more severe (only 20% of men with that particular leg amputation - like 4 inches below the hip - survived ( I can site the reference if anyone wants it). I have read much about his need to control his pain.
