Overview

Amanda Shelton's diary tells the remarkable story of her service as a nurse for the Union on the frontlines of the Civil War in 1864, where she battled for her career amidst wounded and dying soldiers.

Working alongside the small band of nurses of the Special Diet Kitchens, her accomplishments laid the foundation for the value of individualized care, which remains a core concept in modern nursing.
