The following remarkable statement occurs as a note to the account of the battle of Gettysburg on page 78 volume III of The Pictorial History of the Civil War in the United States of America by Benson J. Lossing LL. D. Many mostly young men were maimed in every conceivable way by every kind of weapon and missile the most fiendish of which was an explosive and a poisoned bullet represented in the engraving a little more than half the size of the originals procured from the battlefield there by the writer. _These were sent by the Confederates. Whether any were ever used by the Nationals the writer is not informed._ One was made to explode in the body of the man and the other to leave a deadly poison in him whether the bullet lodged in or passed through him.
