    Ropes was an upright Abolitionist that became even tougher in Bleeding Kansas before the Civil War. Her passionate Christianity and understanding of feminine virtues provided her with the vigor to bring comfort to hundreds of boys and men wounded after the huge battles of First Bull Run and Fredericksburg. She fought for better sanitation, palatable food and humane treatment, all of which were in short supply due to incompetence and malfeasance. This first-hand account gives a sense of how peopl Ropes was an upright Abolitionist that became even tougher in Bleeding Kansas before the Civil War.

This first-hand account gives a sense of how people thought and acted - for good and ill -- during the Civil War.

    Hannah Ropes was the chief nurse at Union Hospital in Washington DC. For a short time she supervised Louisa May Alcott who also served as a nurse at that hospital. Ropes’ diary and letters make clear how long her days were and how difficult the work was tending to an endless stream of wounded soldiers arriving by cart or on foot. I wonder how long I would have lasted working 18 hours a day with limited supplies and even severely limited food for the patients. At least there was adequate brandy o Hannah Ropes was the chief nurse at Union Hospital in Washington DC.

I wonder how long I would have lasted working 18 hours a day with limited supplies and even severely limited food for the patients. At least there was adequate brandy or milk punch to be given out to the patients. These letters and diary entries are a treasure for anyone interested in the history of nursing and in women’s history.

    Hannah Ropes experienced the Civil War on the front lines of a hospital. She was a dedicated nurse and wanted the best possible care for the wounded. Hannah encountered verbal abuse from doctors and stewards who were not necessarily interested in anything except making money and/or keeping women from becoming too effective. Great read on a subject that has not been exhausted.
