Julia Wheelock, The Boys In White, 1st ed.
The True Story of Mercy Street
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.
