We have been somewhat remiss in not researching more aggressively the contributions of African American women during that period.
A special effort will be made to highlight the efforts of women during the Civil War, such as, Susie King Taylor, Harriet Tubman, Charlotte Forten, Sojourner Truth and hundreds of others.
Sure wish someone would assist in researching and sharing information on the following:
Eliza Jones - Nurse at the U.S. Army Hospital, Huntsville, Alabama.
Amanda Wright - Nurse at the Union Hospital, Vicksburg, Mississippi.
Catherine Thomas - Nurse at U.S. Army Hospital, Natchez, Mississippi.
