Soulchile: lol I wouldn't normally recommend this, but you should write it down.. lol

AYWalton: SoulChile I saw you post on FB about folks getting disease. I was curious though you said something about USCT's and WWI. That was two different wars more than 50 years apart.

daviss: Hello Soulchile!

Soulchile: Well just going through some of the records I saw quite a few deceased from disease on the death records for the 58th and the 5th Heavy Art Then looking over the WWI records, the few that are available seems like there were quite a few dead from Pneumonia.

AYWalton: Yes, disease killed many soldiers white and black. Close contact, unsanitary conditions always brought about disease.

alt: I think there a figures about 40-50 % or more deaths in the CW were a result of disease and not battle.

AYWalton: Same thing happened in the contraband camp at Corinth. Major measles outbreak. Lots of lives lost.

Soulchile: I understand the timeframes were when certain diseases Flu swept the population.

AYWalton: Pneumonia, and I suspect possibly TB as well.

daviss: speaking of death records I saw my first one that had Anglo Saxon as the race lol

AYWalton: and don't forget the great Influenza epidemic of 1918. Killed thousands in the large cities. now what is interesting, daviss.

Soulchile: Flu, TB etc. I know that probably there wan't the best of diagnosis and treatment at that time either.

alt: WW I (1917-1918) was around the time of the Big Flu epidemic

daviss: usually american or white lol'

AYWalton: Find any with Ethiopian? I see that often on Draft Cards. exactly alt

Soulchile: I have, AYWalton.

alt: yep AYWalton

daviss: yes I ran across one

Soulchile: My great granduncle Joseph Callins is listed as African on his WWI draft card.. lol I was truly surprised.

AYWalton: yes one sees that from time to time, as well.

alt: My father's brother later died from the effects of 'mustard gas' poisioning he suffered from combat in France during WW I.

AYWalton: and weren't those who were gassed, troubled with respiratory problems for the rest of their lives?

daviss: Alt my grandfathers brother also

Soulchile: They are saying this about the Agent Orange now again. during the Vietnam era.

daviss: my sisters x died from the effects of Agent Orange

alt: so I guess biologocial & chemical warfare ain't anything 'new'.

AYWalton: wow.

Soulchile: no not at all.

AYWalton: true alt they have been around for a while.

Soulchile: Agent Orange is some sort of awful. Imagine what it did to the people who had to live with it in their environment. Hello HistoryBuff
