Hospital Steward W.M. Lyman was with the 17th Corps from January 1864 to the end of the war in and mustered out in July of 1865. As a Hospital Steward he monitored a group of patients in the regimental or Corps Hospitals. He was also in charge of the pharmacy, making sure that all of the medicines prescribed by the surgeons were provided to the soldiers. His paperwork skills had to be superior as he kept most of the records for the surgeons. At times, the hospital steward supervised the cooks, male nurses, and any laundress attached to the hospital. Steward Lyman is currently on detached service with the blue water US Navy.
