Product Overview

In this "unpretending story" published in 1867, Sarah Palmer, known to the Union soldiers she nursed during the Civil War as "Aunt Becky," tells simply and directly one woman''s tale of war. Palmer, believed to have been the first woman to serve as a Union Army nurse, cared for countless sick, wounded, and dying soldiers during her three years of army service. Said one soldier, "I never knew a woman so much thought of as she was by the boys - she never showed any partiality - we all got the same attention - officers no more than privates."
