Description:

In this post, students will learn about the Civil War through a photographic album presented to Anna Lowell in 1864 by a group of attendants in D.C.'s Armory Square Hospital. In 1862, having recently been trained as a nurse, Lowell had traveled from Cambridge to D.C. and immediately gotten to work. Lowell initially served as a nurse on a hospital ship, the Daniel Webster , and, for the remainder of the Civil War, volunteered in Ward K of the Armory Square Hospital. Written by Dever Powell, Rare Book and Early Manuscript Librarian at the National Library of Medicine, this post is published on the Musem's "O Say Can You See?" blog.
