希洛战役– 1862年后,许多内战士兵的生命被称为“天使的光辉”的现象挽救了生命。 埋在泥土中两个雨天的士兵身上的伤口在黑暗中闪闪发光,愈合得异常快。 2001年,两个少年发现了原因-生物发光细菌。

天使的光芒

在希洛(1862)内战中进行的为期两天的战斗中,受伤人数超过16,000。 许多人被固定在河与沼泽之间的一片被雨水浸透的田地里。 他们的伤口很容易被污染。 从许多原因来看,其中一些伤口开始发光。

在示罗(Shiloh)的3500多人死亡中,有几位是将军。 两名尚存的联盟军官将成为美国总统(格兰特和加菲尔德)。 安布罗斯·比尔斯中尉在那里,后来的生活中,当时是一位著名作家,他写道:“上帝的伟大天使站在蓝色英雄和灰色英雄之间,看不见,最后一次入睡是在奇卡莫加森林中。”

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.

  10. Gradieus

    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
