Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This volume launches the press's new "American Civil War Classics" series. First published in 1879, the book recalls Pember's years as a matron at the Confederate Chimborazo Hospital in Richmond, VA, from 1862 to the city's fall in 1865. Pember, the daughter of a Jewish merchant and a staunch supporter of the Confederacy, here offers a firsthand account of life inside a hospital during the conflict. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information.
Booknews
Almost immediately after the Civil War ended, Yates (1825-1913) began writing her account of being a chief matron in the massive Chimorazo Hospital in Richmond, Virginia beginning in later 1862. George C. Rable (southern history, U. of Alabama-Tuscaloosa) contributes a new introduction. The original publisher was G. W. Carleton in New York. Annotation c.
