From the Publisher:

Praise for Hospital Days
"Read this book! It is a wonderful addition to Civil War literature."--Jan Romanovich, The Citizen's Companion

"...probably the best book about the Civil War by a woman writer. The author is intelligent, kind, perceptive, and restrained."--George Adams, Doctors in Blue

"...a thoughtful commentary on the successes and failures of wartime nursing." --Agatha Young, Women and the Crisis

"Happily, over a century later, this wonderfully composed memoir is widely accessible, attractively presented, and affordable."--Civil War Magazine

"This excellent memoir will appeal to both scholars and general readers alike. Writing in a crisp narrative style, Woolsey enlivened her comprehensive narrative by including anecdotes. She could also touch the emotions deeply, without resorting to sentimentality."--Linda G. Black, The Civil War News

About the Author:

Jane Stuart Woolsey was a hospital manager in the late 19th century. She also worked as a teacher at the Lincoln Industrial School for Freedman in Richmond, Virginia, and the Hampton Normal and Agricultural Institute where she taught sewing and housework classes to newly-freed African Americans.
