Over the past three decades, Smithsonian forensic anthropologists have examined the skeletons of several hundred soldiers.

Unmarked military burials have been disturbed by construction projects, exposed by natural processes such as erosion or animal burrowing, and found by relic hunters using metal detectors. Under specific circumstances, military burials have been recovered and evaluated through archaeological investigations including the underwater recovery of the Confederate submarine, H. L. Hunley.

From Dr. Owsley:

"Our case files are used to illustrate the types of Civil
War investigations that my lab has assisted with, noting
circumstances that prompted this research and methods
used in these examinations. This research can identify a soldier, provide information on health, nutrition, and medical
procedures, and reveal the cause of death. As a case in
point, the recent discovery of a battlefield burial containing amputated limbs demonstrates the work of skilled surgeons
operating under challenging conditions.

The complexity and results of these investigations have
increased over the years through gained experience
benefiting from advances in scientific methodology.
Although uncommon, these unusual glimpses into military
history provide very personal perspectives that reflect
the sacrifices and harsh circumstances faced by brave
soldiers.
