The work of the United States Sanitary Commission in aiding the Federal war effort cannot be underestimated. Through its tens of thousands of members spread all across the North, they brought succour and aid to U.S. Army soldiers and particularly their sick and wounded. One of its most distinguished members was Mary Livermore, a seasoned advocate of liberal rights (and after the Civil War, Women’s Sufferage), who was at the forefront of the medical effort of the U.S.S.C.
Her memoirs in the front-line hospital and wards spanned from the early days of the Civil War at the battle of Shiloh right through to its conclusion. She was also heavily involved in the fund raising efforts of her commission and received backing from the highest sources.
