A Soldier's Friend: Civil War Nurse, Cornelia Hancockby Georgiann Baldino
"I don't care what anyone says,"
Cornelia Hancock did not meet Army requirements for nurses, but she managed to serve on the front lines of the American Civil War for nearly two years. Georgiann Baldino's biography provides an unforgettable look at Cornelia's struggle, first to be of service and then to survive the carnage and epidemic illnesses of the Civil War.
"I don't care what anyone says," Cornelia wrote, "war is humbug. It is just put out there to see how much the privates can bear."
