    • Lewis Bushman Farm - Civil War Hospital for Fifth Corps

      The Fifth Corps US Army hospital marker, on Goulden Road (Hospital Road), 1,200 feet north of the (era 1914 - Michael Fiscel) house.

      http://www.virtualantietam.com/vgExhibit/monuments/pages/uh005.html - This website describes - "Army of the Potomac Medical Department Field Hospitals Fifth Corps. The division field hospitals of the Fifth Corps were established July 2nd at the Weikert House and other houses near Little Round Top and along the Taneytown Road. During the night they were removed across Rock Creek and located as follows: 1st Division south of White Run on the Fiscel Farm, 2nd Division 100 rods south of White Run near the Clapsaddle House, 3rd Division one half mile west of Two Taverns and near the pike. These hospitals cared for 1400 wounded and remained in operation until August 2nd 1863. Medical Director 5th Corps Surgeon John J. Milhau US Army 1st Division Surgeon Edward Shippen US Volunteers 2nd Division Assistant Surgeon Clinton Wagner US Army 3rd Division Surgeon Louis W. Read US Volunteers Medical Officer in charge of the Corps Hospitals Surgeon A. M. Clark US Volunteers."

      In the book "The Rebellion Record" edited by Frank Moore and published in 1864, it states on page 128, that the Fifth corps hospital was in 3 divisions. The first division was on Mr Little's farm, north of the house and south of White's Creek, and about one hundred rods east of Third corps. The second divsion was south of Mrs Jesse Clapsaddle's house, across Lousy run, about one hundred rods south of White's Creek. Third division was about half a mile west of Two Taverns, on Jesse Wesley's farm. This division hospital was the most remote of all the Union hospitals from the town of Gettysburgh. They contained together 1400 wounded, including 75 rebels. Dr. Clark, surgeon in charge.

      In the book "The History of the Battle of Gettysburg" by Samuel Penniman Bates on page 204, it states that the Fifth corps contained 75 rebel and 1400 Union.

      Notable solidiers at this hospital:

      Colonel Strong Vincent died at Lewis Bushman farmhouse - Lewis Bushman's son was named after him - Strong Vincent Bushman

      Weed might has died at this farm, but conflicting stories - Tillie Pierce says he died at Jacob Weikert farm and Porter Farley says he died at Lewis Bushman farm

      In the book "Cushing of Gettysburg" by Kent Masterson Brown, on page 213, it states that Colonel Vincent died July 7 in the farmhouse of Lewis A. Bushman, just behind Little Round Top. And on page 222, states that the remains of Patrick H ORorke were buried in the farmyard of Lewis A. Bushman just east of Little Round Top.

      In the book "Day Three Gettysburg" by Jeffry D Wert, on page 164, states that on the Lewis A. Bushman farm, Lieutenant William H. Crennell of the 140th New York had overseen the interment of his commander, Colonel Patrick ORorke, and Brigadier General Stephen H. Weed. Both of the officers had been slain on Little Round Top. In his diary, Crennell wrote that it was a very perplexing job on account of the lack of material etc for the coffins.

      In the book "The Attack and Defense of Little Round Top, Gettysburg, July 2, 1863, by Oliver Willcox Norton, on page 138, it states by Captain Porter Farley that General Weed received a mortal wound, and was carried at once behind the shelter of a rock, and was soon taken in an ambulance to the farmhouse of Louis A. Bushman, which, as well as his barns and outhouses, had been taken possession of and was being used as our division hospital.

      In the book "Rochester in the Civil War" by Blake McKelvey, on page 226, it also states Captain Porter Farleys reference to the Louis A. Bushman farm hospital.

      In the book "Stand Firm Ye Boys From Maine" by Thomas A Desjardin, on page 106, it states Private Oliver Norton of the 83rd Pennsylvania, found Colonel Vincent lying in a room at the Bushman house, one of the farms southeast of Round Top which hospital operations were then quickly consuming.

      http://www.virtualantietam.com/vgExhibit/monuments/detail.cfm?curMon=cm056 - website describes - "On August 1, 1878 a small table was placed on the south slope of Little Round Top to the memory of Brig. General Strong Vincent, who was mortally wounded at that spot." US Army Corps 5, Division 1, Brigade 3, Commander General Strong Vincent

      In 1998, Lewis A Bushman farm located southeast of Sachs Raoad, and south of the US Route 15 bypass. Current brick farmhouse is not the Civil War era farmhouse. Original frame house stoode one to two hundred yards east of the present house. Located near to the Union rear and just east of Little Round Top, it was a hospital of the First Divison, Fifth Corps during the Gettsburg battle in the Civil War. The farmhouse, barns and outhouses were used. The Fifth Corps hospital was first located at the J Weikert farm on Taneytown Road, but was moved to the Bushman farm after the Weikert farm was shelled the afternoon of July 3rd.
