SILVER SPRING, MD – MAY 16: The tibia and fibula of Union Major Gen. Daniel Sickles who had his lower right leg amputated just above the knee in the Civil War on display at the new location of The National Museum of Health and Science in Silver Spring, MD on May 16, 2012. His combat career ended at Gettysburg when his leg was struck by cannon fire. He visited his leg on the anniversary of the battle. With the relocation of Walter Reed Hospital, the museum has found a new home on Linden Lane in Silver Spring, Maryland. Unlike it’s old home at Walter Reed Hospital, the museum reopens making it more accessible for the general public. Among other things, the museum is famous for owning the bullet that killed President Lincoln, the amputated leg of Civil War Gen. Dan Sickles and other medical oddities.
