Product Description

Julia Wheelock’s The Boys in White: The Experience of a Hospital Agent in and around Washington is one of the better memoirs of a Union nurse.

A straightforward account of life in Federal hospitals in Alexandria, Virginia.  Wheelock served in the Washington hospitals from 1862-1865, working with the Michigan Relief Association.

Wheelock paints pictures of hospital life every bit as vivid as the PBS television program Mercy Street.

Light foxing; light bump; light chipping of extremities; else very good.

Wheelock, Julia S.  THE BOYS IN WHITE:  THE EXPERIENCE OF A HOSPITAL AGENT IN AND AROUND WASHINGTON.  New York:  Lange & Hillman, 1870.  1st edition, 274 p., frontispiece, portraits, embossed cover.
