Faces of the Frontier

I have just returned from the Faces of the Frontier held at Blue Licks in Kentucky, where, on Saturday evening, I gave a medical lecture to interested parties that had gathered there. Below you may see some of said lecture:

Performing the removal of a musket ball upon a wounded man.

We discuss the amputation of the arm just prior to the procedure...

Applying the mechanical tourniquet to slow the flow of blood to the injured limb.
The mother acts as surgeon's mate and steadies her child.

Many a patient loses their courage upon first viewing the capital amputation blade.

Uuughhh, makes my tummy feel funny just thinking about it. You need a strong stomach to be a doctor.
