После битвы при Шайло в 1862 году жизни многих солдат Гражданской войны были спасены феноменом под названием «Ангельское сияние». У солдат, пролежавших в грязи два дождливых дня, были раны, которые светились в темноте и заживали необычайно быстро. В 2001 году двое подростков обнаружили причину - биолюминесцентные бактерии.

Сияние ангела

За два дня боев в сражении Гражданской войны при Шайло (1862 г.) число раненых превысило 16,000 XNUMX человек. Многие были обездвижены в грязи пропитанных дождем полей, расположенных между рекой и болотом. Их раны легко заразились. И некоторые из этих ран, по многим оценкам, начали светиться.

Из более чем 3500 погибших в Шайло несколько были генералами. Два оставшихся в живых офицера Союза станут президентом Соединенных Штатов (Грант и Гарфилд). Там был лейтенант Амвросий Бирс, а позже в жизни, к тому времени известный автор, писал о битве: «Великие ангелы Бога стояли невидимыми среди героев в синем и героев в сером, спя свой последний сон в лесах Чикамауга. . »

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.

    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

    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
