Also in the 9-mile long wagon train after Lee’s defeat at Gettysburg, were scores of wounded Confederates with injuries not severe enough to kill them, but severe enough to require a journey home to Richmond. Richmond’s Hospital Number One, is said to have taken in hundreds or thousands of injured Union and Confederate soldiers. Their fate is not known.
