Shot in the forehead and left for dead in the Battle of Chickamauga in 1863, Union soldier Jacob Miller, covered in blood, crawled past confederate lines to his own side.
After suffering from the gaping wound in his forehead for another nine months, Miller was finally sent home where he was able to get surgery. Most of the musket ball was removed, but seventeen years later buck shot dropped out of the hole in his forehead and fourteen years after that two pieces of lead fell out.
