NYCHAPS Speakers Series: James Rada

July 25 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

Free

Rada will discuss his book “Battlefield Angels: The Daughters of Charity Work as Civil War Nurses.” The Daughters of Charity in Emmitsburg, MD, were the only trained nurses in the country at the start of the Civil War. Their services were so in demand that both the Union and Confederacy allowed them to cross the borders unimpeded at the start of the war. The brutality of the war would test their abilities as they ran hospitals, served on troop transports, and provided care in battlefield hospitals and ambulances. They even had their own Central House occupied by armies from both sides of the war.
