Nevins I-91: “ One of the better, straightforward accounts of life in Federal hospitals…”

Julia Wheelock felt the need to help the fallen Union soldiers so she went to Washington City to offer her services. She was there from September 1862 (Antietam) through the end of the War when she left in July 1865. She kept a detailed diary that she wrote in each evening. This served as the basis of this excellent first person narrative.

Price: $140.00
