Lincoln, Nebraska: University of Nebraska Press. 1998. xii, 173 pp. She was called 'The Florence Nightingale of America.' From the fighting at Gettysburg to the capture of Richmond, this young Quaker nurse worked tirelessly to relieve the suffering of soldiers. She was one of the great heroines of the Union. Cornelia Hancock served in field and evacuating hospitals, in a contraband camp, and (defying authority) on the battlefield. Her letters to family members are witty, unsentimental, and full of indignation about the neglect of wounded soldiers and black refugees. Hancock was fiercely devoted to the welfare of the privates who had 'nothing before them but hard marching, poor fare, and terrible fighting.'KEYWORDS: CORNELIA HANCOCK LETTERS CIVIL WAR NURSE MILITARY HISTORY AMERICAN BIOGRAPHY AUTOBIOGRAPHY MEDICINE MEDICAL Condition Notes: Sticker on rear wrapper
