Mary Bickerdyke

Mary Bickerdyke. Never heard of her? You’re not alone! In my unofficial survey, I have yet to find a single person who has. This short story, about a 20 minute read, is a lost treasure that somehow slipped through the cracks of Civil War history. You will understand, after reading it, why she was called America’s Florence Nightingale and why General Sherman said of her, “She outranks me.”

What Reviewers are Saying

Every student should be required to read this book and others like it.This would stimulate gratitude for the people who helped make our country what it is. No matter how you feel about the civil war there were great sacrifices on both sides of plain everyday people. I greatly appreciate the author bringing this lady to my attention.
