This was on the union side. This system was 1 driver per vehicle and 2 stretchers per vehicle. They would collect wounded men from the battlefield and take them to the dressing rooms and then the field hospital. This was Dr. Jonathan Letterman's idea to make the vehicle. On August 2nd 1862, the idea was established. The men who would drive the vehicles were men that were not quite good enough to be in the actual battle. In the old method men would get medicine drunk to not have to go out mid fight and have the possibility of getting shot. Mr. Letterman had many wonderful ideas in the civil war that are still being used today.

This event was the opening in the civil war. It happened in April 12-14 1861 Near the harbour of Charleston, South Carolina. The United States Army began building the boat on an island at the entrance to Charleston Harbor in 1829. The fort was named for Thomas Sumter, a general who had won key victories against the British in the Carolinas during the American Revolution. The fort was still under construction, when a succession of events occurred that brought the contending regions of the United States to the verge of armed conflict. Soon after the election of Abraham Lincoln in November 1860, the state of South Carolina called a convention that passed an ordinance of secession (December 20, 1860). Pickens seized the arsenal and other forts around the harbour and began hyping up against Sumter. Meanwhile, his commissioners in Washington requested the recall of the Federal troops from Charleston. Buchanan refused this request. In a message to Congress on December 3, Buchanan had already denied the right of secession, but he forcefully stated that the Constitution gave him no right to attempt any threat. He hoped for compromise, and a committee of Congress considered various proposals for adjustment. A peace conference, called by Virginia, also met in Washington and suggested amendments to the Constitution that would satisfy Southern complaints. Lincoln and the leaders of the Republican Party refused to accept the adjustments that the Southerners demanded. In the meantime, Buchanan sent an unarmed commercial steamer, Star of the West, with supplies and reinforcements to Sumter, but it turned back when it was fired upon in the harbour on January 9, 1861. Mississippi, Florida, Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, and Texas all followed South Carolina’s example and seized all forts. A difficult problem confronted the new president. Seven slave states had withdrawn, but weight still remained in the Union. Any attempt at threats would throw all these states, except Delaware, into the arms of the Confederacy. The battles opened fire at 4:30 AM on April 12. The next afternoon Anderson agreed to surrender and evacuated the fort at noon on April 14. When the U.S. troops marched out of the fort, they waved the U.S. flag and carried out a gun salute. On the 50th round of the 100-gun salute, an explosion occurred, causing the only death of the engagement. Pvt. Daniel Hough of the 1st U.S. Artillery regiment was the first of as many as 850,000 Americans who would perish before the cessation of hostilities.
