Wednesday in Wyoming -- May 21, 2014

The medical tent was one of the most popular ones to visit, and justifiably, since medical science has changed dramatically since the 1940s.
I had never seen a rolling stretcher like this one and wondered how easily it moved over the rough terrain of many of the battlefields.
Not only has equipment changed since the war, but I'd like to think that amputated body parts weren't simply dumped into bins the way they were here.  That's a scene I identify with the Civil War, not one from the twentieth century.
