“United States General Hospital, Hilton Head, S. C., interior. The United States General Hospital at Hilton Head, S. C., was built very strongly of wood, and really had somewhat of an architectural appearance. It was about four hundred feet long, and had excellent accommodation for about five hundred patients. On the right hand of the hospital is the chief doctor’s residence. We also publish a view of one of the wards, taken shortly after the battle of James Island, where so many Federals fell- either killed or wounded. Hilton Head, which is a very beautiful, fertile spot, was owned principally by General Drayton, who cultivated there that celebrated cotton known as Sea island. The woods, which principally consist of orange, palmetto, pine and dwarf oaks, commence at about a mile from the sea."— Frank Leslie, 1896
