Synopsis

The story of Mary Edwards Walker, the doctor and women’s rights activist who served in the Civil War and received the Medal of Honor.
Mary Edwards Walker was unconventional for her time: She was one of the first women doctors in the country, she was a suffragist, and she wore pants! And when the Civil War struck, she took to the battlefields in a modified Union uniform as a commissioned doctor. For her service, she became the only woman ever to earn the Medal of Honor.
This picture book biography tells the story of a remarkable woman who challenged traditional roles and lived life on her own terms.

This is a fixed-format ebook, which preserves the design and layout of the original print book.
