    Where can I find records relating to Civil War hospitals and their patients?

      I have a relative who was a Union solider (Greenberry Shanks, 11 KY Cavalry, Company D) who was left at a hospital in Gallatin, Tenn 1862. I did a records request to NARA a few years ago, but all that was returned was his Muster Rolls. Just recently, I turned up (via Fold 3), a "Hospital Muster Roll", but it's for something later in the war. Are there separate military hospital files at the Archives that might have more info? Thank you!
