National Museum of American History:Diary of a Civil War Nurse

National Nurses week is May 6th to 12th so to help us celebrate nurses, we are looking back at experiences of a Civil War nurse. This site is an interactive exhibition that shows personal letters and diaries that document what nurses went through during the war. Explore the differences and similarities between a nurse’s job back then and now through this exhibition.
