Register of Confederate Naval Patients in the C.S. Hospital Ship "St. Philip" at

New Orleans, Louisiana, 1861-1862.

(transcribed by Terry Foenander.)


As with the Register of Naval Patients in the Charity Hospital at New Orleans, Louisiana, the following register is part of Confederate Naval Surgeon Lewis Willis Minor's papers held at the Alderman Memorial Library, University of Virginia at Charlottesville, Virginia, and is reproduced through the kind permission of the Associate Director of Special Collections, Mr. Edward Gaynor.

The names on this list are arranged chronologically by date of admission, although a very small number of dates are out of sequence. Some of these naval patients were admitted on more than one occasion, and this is indicated in the remarks column, for each subsequent entry. There are 130 entries shown on this list, and many include age and place of birth. A full list of the states or countries of birth, as abbreviated in the Place of Birth column is included at the end of the list.

Details of Surgeon Minor's service can be found at the Charity Hospital web page. Please quote the following when requesting information relating to the papers:
