The final portion are some of the stories she had published during the war time. It's really interesting to put yourself in 1863 and see what you would've read in the papers. Very insightful w Storytelling you would expect fro ...more

Various short stories of experiences in hospitals in Civil war time period in Washington, D.C. I especially liked the one called "The Brothers" that mentioned the 54th Mass. regiment

A short bio but the short stories on her time in the hospital are very revealing about people and wars.
