What happened to the wounded soldiers of Perryville’s Battle?

What happened to the wounded soldiers?  Nearly all of the homes, businesses, stables, and churches within a 10-mile radius of the battlefield were used as field hospitals after the battle.  A few weeks later, 11 official, numbered hospitals were established in Perryville, and all of the remaining patients were moved to these hospitals. The last of the Perryville hospitals closed in March 1863, more than five months after the battle.
