Honoring Civil War Nurses

This Birth Place of Souls: The Civil War Nursing Diary of Harriet Eaton

This volume is an edited version of Civil War nurse Harriet Eaton’s personal diary and newspaper correspondence. Eaton traveled to Virginia after the Battle of Antietam to help care for soldiers. Her nightly journal entries, written over 11 months during two tours of duty, share the experiences of the Civil War nurse in a vivid, vibrant way. A long introduction by Jane Schultz, author of Women at the Front, helps put Eaton’s experience in context.
