Honoring Civil War Nurses

Hospitals, Surgeons, and Nurses

Interested in primary documents? This site includes links to actual letters from a variety of Civil War nurses, including Cornelia Hancock and the Baroness Von Olnhausen, nee Mary Phinney. You’ll also see diary entries from Clara Barton, Susan Blackford and others. You can find first-hand information about the actual conditions of regimental hospitals as well. (And you thought you worked under stressful circumstances!)
