シャイローの戦い– 1862年の後、多くの南北戦争の兵士の命は、エンジェルズグローと呼ばれる現象によって救われました。 雨の2001日間泥の中に横たわった兵士たちは、暗闇の中で輝き、異常に速く治癒した傷を負っていました。 XNUMX年に、XNUMX人のXNUMX代の若者がその理由を発見しました–生物発光細菌。

エンジェルズグロー

シャイローの南北戦争の戦い(1862年)での16,000日間の戦闘で、負傷者はXNUMX人を超えました。 多くは、川と沼の間にある雨に濡れた畑の泥の中に固定されていました。 彼らの傷は簡単に汚染されました。 そして、これらの傷のいくつかは、多くの説明によって、輝き始めました。

Shilohでの3500人以上の死者のうち、数人は将軍でした。 生き残ったXNUMX人の組合役員がアメリカ合衆国大統領になる(グラントとガーフィールド)。 アンブローズビアス中尉がそこにいて、その後、有名な作家がこの戦いについて次のように書いています。「神の偉大な天使たちは、青の英雄と灰色の英雄の間に見えず、チカモーガの森で最後の眠りを眠っていました。 。」

The soldiers who laid in mud for two rainy days had wounds that glowed in the dark and healed unusually fast. In 2001, two teens discovered the reason – bioluminescent bacteria.”

    Here are some of the more salient points about this life saving bacterium:

    >>”The bacterium P. luminescens lives in the gut of entomopathogenic nematodes. Entomopathogenic nematodes are small ‘thread worms’ that lethally infect insect larvae. The lethality derives from its symbiotic partner, the bacterium that are expelled in vivo and in turn elaborate toxins and enzymes that kill and ‘nutrify’ the tissues the larvae. (One such toxin is produced by the gene called ‘mcf’—for ‘makes caterpillars floppy’).”

    >>”Furthermore, and here is the crux of the argument, P. luminescens produces in abundance an antibiotic, 3,5-dihydroxy-4-isopropylstilbene, which kills competing bacteria that would otherwise cause putrefaction.”

    >>And P. luminescens, true to its name, is bioluminescent.

    The bioluminescent bacteria grew on cold bodies of the soldiers which killed the bad bacteria that could have killed them.

    Interestingly, the chemical secreted by the bacteria is both antibiotic and anti-inflammatory. It is currently being tested as a potential “magic bullet” treatment for plaque psoriasis

    My great great grandfather was wounded at the battle of Shiloh. He went back home to Illinois to recuperate, then rejoined William Tecumseh Sherman in time for the March to the Sea. Don’t know if he experienced the bioluminescent bacteria though.

    I miss the good old mystical days, when there was magic!

    Of course this can’t be confirmed for sure, but it is the most popular hypothesis.

    didn’t i literally just see this post here less than a week ago

    This also came up in Diana Gabaldon’s Outlander series, in her book *Dragonfly in Amber.*

    Not the only place in the world where this healing mud exists. There’s a place some where in the UK where the ‘re’-discovery of healing mud was published recently.

    Just reading the second sentence the most logical conclusion would be bioluminescent bacteria. Don’t see what two teens have to do with anything that others couldn’t have explained in that 139 year span.

    Don’t tell the religious people we’ve explained another one of there miracles they dialed their god for lol morons

  12. Billy_T_Wierd

    We can never really know if it was the bacteria or not. It conveniently fits the story, but does that make it true? Circumstantial evidence at best. Without a sample to test the truth is lost to history
