Here is a group of over 25 handwritten essays from a man that would go on to be a Doctor that served during the Civil War. This grouping consists of over 25 essays written by surgeon Cromwell Orrick Johnson. These are from before his service in the Civil War. These are essays on everything from English to medical subjects. They are all well written and very interesting. Instead of enlisting in the war immediately, Cromwell Johnson finished his studies. He began his post-secondary career at Allegheny College in Meadville, PA, and after graduating, he served as principal for the Louisiana Institute in Missouri for two years. Johnson began studying medicine at the Medical University in New York. He took spurious notes in school and kept a daily journal from the last years of his teens until his graduation in 1863. Graduating in the spring of 1863, Johnson used his medical training on the battlefield. He enlisted as an assistant surgeon of the 5th Pennsylvania Reserves, also known as the 34th Pennsylvania, on March 9, 1863, and attempted to heal wounded men at the Battle of Gettysburg. Hand disease forced him to resign on September 29, 1863, but he returned to service with the Minnesota Cavalry in Brackett's Battalion on March 19, 1864 to fight against American Indian uprisings. He died before reaching the age of 30 at Bloody Run on December 21, 1864. You get all of these hand written essays for $295.00.
