Dear Ms. Doss,
We were able to find an online copy of the report “Medical Topography and Diseases of Camp J.E. Johnston” in Statistical Report on Sickness and Mortality of the United States Compiled from Records of the Surgeon General’s Office Embracing a Period of 16 Years from January, 1839 - January 1955, 34th Cong. 1st. Sess., Sen. Exec. Doc. 96 . We hope this is able to answer your questions.
If the National Archives has any additional records about Camp Joseph E. Johnston or the practice of medical topography by U.S. Army surgeons during the 19th century, they would be custody of the National Archives at Washington, DC - Textual Reference (RDT1) which you can contact via their email address email@example.com. Questions about army history can also be referred to the US Army Center for Military History. Questions about identification of artifacts found on your property can be referred to the archeology department of a local university, or the Texas Historical Commission's (THC) Archeology Division.
We hope you find this information useful. Best of luck with your research!
