624: Mary Galloway
Union Soldier During the War Between the States
Birth and Death Dates Unknown, as are Locations
Mary was wounded at the Battle of Antietam (sources differ as to whether she was shot in the neck or received a chest wound). Her identity was uncovered by Clara Barton while undergoing treatment in a field hospital after laying in a ravine for thirty-six hours.
Mary would survive and make a full recovery. Apparently she left the fighting after Clara located her husband and also *apparently* (according to one random person on the internet) Clara reported Mary and her husband named a child after her.
