========================================= More info from civilwarundertaker . net:
A new profession emerged during the early years of the War called the "embalming surgeon". These men were usually surgeons who had learned the embalming procedure either from Dr. Holmes himself, or from one of his protégés. As time passed the undertaker began to see the potential of the embalming procedure for his profession. Thus many of them began learning the procedure. Slowly embalming became an integral part of the undertaking business offering, although it did take some years before it became commonplace. In the photo above Drs. Chamberlin and Lyford appear to be demonstrating the embalming technique to two Union officers. Note the two previously embalmed soldiers in the coffins on either side of the tent. This may have merely been staged for the photographer. The field setup pictured might be very typical of that found near a battlefield or field hospital. ============================================
