Nurse and Spy in the Union Army - The Original Classic Edition

Overview

I found this book exciting and very interesting, the author certainly was a brave lady who played a significant part in the Civil War (masquerading as a man). It is an exciting read, and a good historical account of battles during the Civil War.

A beautifully written and heartbreaking account of Emma Edmonds experiences during the first two years of the Civil War.

I was surprised. She refrains from name calling her enemies, and even when she ...

Overview

I found this book exciting and very interesting, the author certainly was a brave lady who played a significant part in the Civil War (masquerading as a man). It is an exciting read, and a good historical account of battles during the Civil War.

A beautifully written and heartbreaking account of Emma Edmonds experiences during the first two years of the Civil War.

I was surprised. She refrains from name calling her enemies, and even when she complains about someones behavior, she does so delicately and diplomatically. She relates stories about other people, and I have chocked up during some of them, like when she talks about a nurse who refused to leave his patients even if it meant he would be captured by the Confederate Army.

She reminds us that even the Confederates are humans and expresses her wish that the war would end so people can stop suffering and hurting each other, even as she faces the opposite sides army with pistols drawn. I bought the book to help me in researching Civil War era women spies, and her details and explanations helped me understand what went into spying before James Bond was created.

In between thrilling stories about her adventures as a spy, and emotion churning stories about those she watched suffer the effects of the war, she finds optimistic stories to share to remind us to see the good in life.

This is an original source for Civil War History, and its been meticulously documented with endnotes that set the text in context of what else was happening at the time. Amazing job on the part of the 20th century editor, and facinating reading for the history buff or researcher alike.
