A few months later the Colonel was wearing this very jacket when he was severely wounded in the left arm at Tom's Brook, VA. Dr. Hunter McQuire saved the COlonel's arm by heroic effort, and his jacket! Shortly after the war Dr. McQuire returned the torn and blood stained relic to the Colonel. Donated by the Lemmon family.'' With 5 of 8 buttons. Bottom of left arm is torn off.
