Through the story of this one family, the reader glimpses the sweep of the northern Civil War experience. The Woolseys of New York City -- a widowed mother, seven daughters, and one son devoted their lives to the preservation of their beloved Union. Georgeanna, Jane, Eliza, Carry, and Hatty served in military hospitals. Abby organized sewing and supply work for the Women's Central Association of Relief. Mary wrote patriotic poems. "Moremamma" Woolsey rushed to Gettysburg to nurse the wounded. This book tells us of women carving out a role in the wider war effort and the beginnings of the nursing profession. It is a journey into the social world of wealthy New York society. It is one of the great family stories of the Civil War.
