Chloroform Tin

Title: Chloroform Tin
Description: Chloroform tin used by Civil War surgeons to render wounded soldiers unconscious. During the Civil War, chloroform slowly replaced ether as an incapacitating agent to subdue struggling and suffering patients. Chloroform was administered to wounded soldiers by placing drops of the drug onto a cone-shaped cloth, which was placed over the patient's nose and mouth.
