Question from a Reader

The following was submitted in our comment section under the February meeting notice – if you can help this reader out, please let him know (you can find contact information in the comments section)

I have a question about hospital locations in Nashville during the Civil War. My great-great-great uncle was in the union army (79th Indiana)and occupied Nashville in 1862. As with a lot of soldiers he got sick and died from Typhoid. I got his records from the national archives and it has a copy of his death certificate that said that he was in hospital #13 when he died. After a lot of internet browsing the best thing I can come up with is that hospital #13 was the Hume high school, now the Hume-Fogg Academic High School. I know the original building has been replaced, but is this in fact the location of hospital #13?

Any help in this matter would be appreciated.
