2 She Went to the Field: Women Soldiers of the Civil War
Bonnie Tsui
160 pages, 6 1/4 x 9 1/4, hardback, Globe Pequot
She Went to the Field: Women Soldiers of the Civil War tells the little-known, true stories of the brave women who boldly challenged gender boundaries during The War Between the States. Whether disguising themselves as male soldiers or participating in related military capacities as spies, nurses, and vivandieres, these heroic women deserve to be recognized both for their contributions to the war and to women's rights.
Written in an engaging style, this book draws the reader into what has been, until recently, a mere side note in Civil War history. From Frances Clayton (aka Frances Clalin), who fought for the Union in eighteen battles and was wounded three times, to Sarah Edmonds (aka Private Frank Thompson, Union), who released a memoir detailing her adventures before the war even ended, these women patriots and their sisters played a vital ¿ and often overlooked ¿ role on the battlefield and behind the scenes.

Letters of a Civil War Nurse: Cornelia Hancock, 1863-1865, Cornelia Hancock Edited by Henrietta Stratton Jaquette Introduced by Jean V. Berlin

3 Letters of a Civil War Nurse: Cornelia Hancock, 1863-1865
Cornelia Hancock Edited by Henrietta Stratton Jaquette Introduced by Jean V. Berlin
179 pages, Illus., paperback, University of Nebraska Press
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."
Originally published in 1937 as South after Gettysburg, Hancock's letters were edited by Henrietta Stratton Jaquette, the granddaughter of a cousin. This Bison Books edition is introduced by Jean V. Berlin, the editor of A Confederate Nurse: The Diary of Ada W. Bacot, 1860-1863.

“[Hancock’s] war letters offer a historically valuable picture of Civil War campaigns and conditions, and, at the same time, a clear and colorful portrait of a remarkable personality. It is her candor, definiteness and high spirit which combine to give her letters their peculiar interest and value.”—New York Times.

“A realistic account of the war at its peak of brutality.”—Journal of Southern History.
