Product Description

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.

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.
