How would you serve your country if you could not fight on a battlefield?

Like many women in the Civil War, Cordelia Harvey cared deeply about the men and boys fighting far from Wisconsin. As a woman she could not fight, and she was far from where battles were being fought. After her husband, Louis, drowned, the governor offered her a job that would let her help Wisconsin soldiers. Cordelia jumped at the chance.

Travel with Cordelia as she goes up and down the Mississippi to visit Wisconsin soldiers in military hospitals. Listen as she writes to the governor about the need for good food, clean supplies, and fresh air. Go along as she journeys to Washington, D.C., to convince President Lincoln to build a Soldier's Home hospital in Wisconsin. Follow her as she returns home to start an orphanage for the children of fallen soldiers

In Cordelia Harvey: Civil War Angel, celebrate one of our nation's unsung heroes.
