Join author Daniel L. Stika as he examines the work of Wisconsin's Nightingale, Cordelia Harvey. As a tireless campaigner for improved medical care for Civil War soldiers, Harvey inspects battlefield hospitals and takes her reports of squalor and death all the way to the White House. Throughout the course of several meetings with President Abraham Lincoln, Harvey advocates for the construction of hospitals with the sole purpose of caring for the men who are fighting and dying for their country.
