Hi Megan

I don't have any direct websites, one of the best sources the AFIP closed
in 2011 - they had a wonderful collection of artifacts and specimens going
back to before the Civil War. (I have to confess I could have done without
seeing Dan Sickles leg though - that was just plain creepy.)   It was a
wealth of information about the progression of Pathology in the time period
you are asking about.  Now it is a part of the Joint Pathology Center in
Bethesda Maryland.  The phone number is 301-295-4819.

Another resource would be the NLM (National Library of Medicine) also in
Bethesda.  If you go to the website http://www.nlm.nih.gov/nmd/index.html
it brings up a menu and if you go to Medical History Library you can start
searching there.  They have  a group of reference librarians there that
should be able to help you as well, the phone number is 301-402-8878 or you
can e-mail them at
hmdref <@t> nlm.nih.gov .
They were very helpful to me while I was at the NIH and if you tell them
exactly what you are looking for I'm sure they can assist you with your

Best of Luck
