BULLET IN ARM MORE THAN 50
In the war between the North and
the South, 1861-65, Coleridge township
Randolph county, furnished one Hiram
P. Gardner, and while he was serving
his country at the battle of Bristow
Station in the State of Virginia, on
the 14th day of October, 1863, just
two days before he was 20 years old,
he was shot in the left elbow. The
ball that caused this wound has re
mained in this arm for just 52 years,
one month and 17 days, it having come
out on the 1st day of December of
its own accord. Mi. Gardner now has
this bullet and it could not be bought
for any price. The bullet weighs a
heavy half ounce. When it went into
the arm it hit the bone and shows
very plainly the battered part, of the
ball that hit the bone. From this in
jured bone this arm has hurt and dis
charged pus all the time for more than
50 years, and at times this wound
would give ext.vsme pain and trouble,
and this writer hua at various times
had to lance this arm, but Mr. Gard
ner would never consent to an opera
tion, though often advised. The pain
this old soldier has stood hc been
something fearful, besides having a
stiff arm. Yet we find, him cheerful
and he has made a splendid living, a
most excellent citizen, and has raised
a large and respectable family. Its
truly wonderful what these old sol
diers have stood, yet we in out? com
forts and pleasures are heard to com
plain more than they.
