     “Almost every comfort we have nowadays in nursing was absent from the beginning and towards the last the hospitals were unspeakably lacking in needfuls.” ~ Volunteer Nurse at Winder Hospital

     While medical science made several advances during the Civil War, the doctors and hospitals in the Southern states faced overwhelming casualties with few supplies and inadequate personnel. Citing more than fifty facilities in Virginia’s capital, Richmond’s Wartime Hospitals illustrates how exhausted resources rapidly defeated Southern doctor’s heroic efforts. Rebecca Barbour Calcutt’s thoroughly researched study includes staff records and other archival material.
