Sophronia E. Bucklin

Sophronia E. Bucklin‘s memoir In Hospital and Camp: A Woman’s Record of Thrilling Incidents Among the Wounded in the Late War chronicles her experiences as a nurse in Federal field hospitals and other medical facilities.

Have you read it? Interested in reading it? I’ve read portions but have not actually read it cover to cover. Add a comment if you might be interested in doing a Sunday morning read-along for the next couple of weeks while we’re all trying to stay closer to home. I’m looking ahead at my work schedules and am thinking this might be a good experience, and it would help with a larger research project on field hospitals I’ve been starting to dabble in.

  2. Susie King Taylor’s autobiography is another wonderful book about her life as a Civil War nurse:
