Civil War wounded treated in Rochester Hospitals


Transcribed by: Gary Welch

The following story about Civil War wounded who were treated in Rochester hospitals is from the Rochester Republican dated June 16, 1864. The list of soldiers in the original was not alphabetized, otherwise I made few changes. The letters in the second column indicate the company, the third column is the regiment. Regiments indicated solely by a number are probably infantry. Except for a couple of noted cases, all regiments are probably N.Y.

The Wounded Men at the Hospitals

The sick and wounded soldiers who arrived here yesterday P.M. were all safely transferred to the Hospitals in the street cars and hacks. - The hackmen who were not engaged volunteered to convey the wounded, and the cartmen generally came forward to convey baggage free.

Of the 375 [note: there are a few less than 375 names in the list] who came in the train, about 60 went to City Hospital [now called Rochester General] and the balance to St. Mary's. The latter hospital will have in a few days still more room for the reception of patients and they will arrive as fast as there is room for them.

The men are in good spirits. Some have taken furloughs from Dr. Backus and have gone home. These men belong to this and neighboring counties, and but few reside in this city.

Dr. Backus reports that all are doing well and none are in a critical condition though a few have serious wounds. Dr. Montgomery extracted a bullet from a wound last night. The surgeons of the Hospitals are going over the Wards carefully and will see that each patient receives all the attention and surgical skill he may require. Friends of the soldiers residing here or elsewhere may rely upon it that nothing will be omitted that can conduce to the comfort of the sick and wounded that will secure a speedy recovery. The soldiers who have been brought here are very fortunate and appear to understand this.

The following is a list of the men received yesterday with the regiments to which they belong:
