In this new book, students will learn about these extraordinary doctors and nurses such as Dorothea Dix, the Union armys Superintendent of Female Nurses; Dr. Elizabeth Blackwell, the first female doctor of modern times; and Clara Barton, a nurse who later founded the American Red Cross. While lives were being lost on the front, these women helped save many.
