hospital near Tiner's Station?, TN

Hello:

Well, after much needed sleep it's not exactly the next day but 430am, and I'm ready to report my just found new discoveries. Trying not to be over-excited because I know I have a long day ahead of me, and I have to conserve energy for over-excitement later - grin.

Stonehenge 'a long-term cemetery'
(My Thoughts: Disappointment! Who were there to carry those BIG stones if Stonehenge was a burial site? Doh! Moving on...)

As Bragg' s forces gathered in Chattanooga, the need for more facilities became apparent, and Dr. Stout opened other hospitals in the area, including the Gilmer Hospital also on Cameron Hill, the Bragg at Ringgold, the Buckner, the Withers Hospital at Tyner's Station (the Silverdale Confederate Cemetery holds the remains of men who died at that hospital), the Crutchfield House, which became known as Foard's Hospital, and others in Cleveland, Tunnel Hill, Catoosa Springs, Dalton and Atlanta.

(My Thoughts: hmm... the Withers Hospital at Tyner's Station (the Silverdale Confederate Cemetery holds the remains of men who died at that hospital)... *flashing light-bulb!* I have been thinking this all wrong... it is 1862... but I am in 2008! What if the hospital was nothing but tents, a makeshift kind of hospital? No buildings, how can there be buildings? These men are fighting a war not building a hospital! They're in the middle of... there are no buildings in 1863! At least not in Mississippi or Tennessee. Where's the map... dad-blasted, Tennessee is right there above Mississippi! I don't know why I thought Tennessee was by Chicago!

A Condensed History of the Silverdale Confederate Cemetery (Cached)
By Jerry A. Wormsley for the
Chattanooga Area Relic and Historical Association

Rosters of the units in J.M. Withersí division, are posted on CARHAís web site to possibly aid relatives in locating where their Civil War soldiers are buried.

General Braxton Bragg succeeded General Beauregard as commander of the Army of Mississippi shortly after the Battle of Shiloh and on July 21, 1862 ordered 27,816 men to Chattanooga, Tennessee in preparation for his famed Kentucky campaign. These men had been in camps in northern Mississippi where poor water, shallow wells, mosquitoes and dysentery had made many of them sick. The number of troops made it necessary for most of them to be located outside of town. Brigadier General J.M. Wither's division was placed at Tynerís Station on the railroad 10 miles from town. The men buried at Silverdale are from General Withersí division hospital. His division consisted of men from Alabama, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, and South Carolina. The hospital was housed in 100 tents. It remained at Tynerís station and in control of Withersí division until after it was moved to Cleveland, Tennessee in December due to the weather becoming too cold for the men to remain in tents.

My Thoughts: And I thought Stonehenge was a waste of my valuable time - grin. If I'd never gleaned that article first, I'd never would have thought of time difference. Sort of like time-travel, what exhilarating experience - grin. Well, now on to "Cleaveland disease" and I think that last sentence is a HUGE clue.
....

I also think it's time to present my/our findings to the PARTRIDGE descent - grin.

"Thank you to all ears, eyes, and Hearts! For without the kind Souls on PARTRIDGE journey, I wouldn't be able to breathe easier now - GRIN."

A special "thanks" to [DOCTORS-NURSES-MIDWIVES] listers!
