The following was added by Lyn Cole:

Some Americans living and working overseas felt that it was their duty to return to their homeland when the Civil War began. Charles Michel, a physician specializing in ophthalmology, was born and educated in Charleston, South Carolina, but was working in Paris, France, until 1860, when U.S. politics were becoming heated. Back at home, he served the Confederate army as surgeon in the field, and later was in charge of hospitals at Graysville, Marietta, Atlanta, and Macon, Georgia.

After the war Dr. Michel settled in St. Louis and set up his own practice specializing in ophthalmology. He also served as a professor of ophthalmology at the Missouri Medical College from 1869 to 1907. He was an ex-member of the St. Louis Medical Society and Missouri State Medical Association. Dr. Michel died peaceably in his home at the age of 80 in 1913, one year after he retired.
