2528. James , Csa Long Dr.
Dr. Long never married. He served as a field surgeon for
General Fitzhugh Lee. After contracting a disease on a campaign
in the north, he was honorably discharged and sent home. After
he regained his health, he returned to the army and joined LeeÕs
Cavalry. Dr. Long was the first to advocate that patients with
fever drink large quantities of cold water. For this unorthodox
treatment, he was almost cited for contempt by a medical board.
Fortunately, General Lee intervened when he discovered that the
mortality rate of Dr. LongÕs patients was lower than for most of
the doctors. Dr. Long was commended rather than reprimanded and
this attracted the attention of the Union Surgeon Board. Under
a flag of truce, the Union surgeons sent a committee to observe
Dr. LongÕs treatment.
