After the Battle of Shiloh in 1862, many
Civil War soldiers’ lives were saved by a
phenomenon called ‘Angel’s Glow.’ The
soldiers, who lay in the mud for two rainy
days, had wounds that began to glow in
the dark and heal unusually fast. In 2001,
2 teens won an international science fair
by discovering the soldiers had been so
cold that their bodies created the perfect
conditions for growing a bioluminescent
bacteria, which ultimately destroyed the
bad bacteria that could’ve killed them. Source Source 2 Source 3
