Union soldiers, who had not yet been at the front, rushed to get a good look at “secesh” and began to joke at them. The rebs took taunts silently, until one fair, young fellow called out in a drawling tone, “Y’all will sing a different tune by summah.”
Our men responded with derisive whoops.
But I cringe. Knowing southern men as I do, the glare in that Confederate’s eyes and agreement from his fellow soldiers prophesied doom to come.

March 12th, 1864
"My Dear Sister, Do not worry about the army. They do not intend to go to Richmond and while the ale and whiskey holds out all the officers don't care, and privates know it is a great ways farther than they wish to march. We don't want to go anywhere, just be let alone and be allowed to keep our men comfortable." Cornelia Hancock, Civil War Nurse

Clara Barton worked tirelessly to gain the trust of government officials. She gathered supplies from all over the country and became known as the “Angel of the Battlefield.” She cared for wounded men at sixteen different battles. After the war she became a popular lecturer. The notoriety she gained left a mistaken impression that it was common for women to work near the frontlines. However, most women worked in general hospitals in northern cities or well to the rear. Women like Clara Barton were exceptions, but they taught women they had value outside their homes and churches.
