    Thanks for this definition. A 16 year old soldier in our family died of "inflamation of the brain from vulnus sclopeticum". A wounded young man captured in Virginia in May 1864 and died at Andersonville Aug. 1864.

    Thanks for the definition. I was reading the military records of my g-g-g-grandfather's brother, who my g-g-uncle had told me lost both legs in the Civil War. Indeed he did, and he was said to have vuln. sclopet,never heard of it.
