[Correspondence] Forgotten episodes of euthanasia in the 19th century

Two forgotten episodes of euthanasia occurred in the 19th century. The first was recounted by Giuseppe Bandi,1 an officer of Giuseppe Garibaldi, who was injured during the Battle of Calatafimi in 1860 (Sicily, Italy). Bandi was subsequently admitted to the san Michele Convent (Calatafimi, Italy), where other soldiers who had also been gravely wounded were recovering. Among the soldiers was a young man—the Mantuan—with a broken leg who had gangrene and another—the Maironi from Bergamo—who had been wounded by a bullet to his right arm.
