Publisher's Summary

Every memoir of the American Civil War provides us with another view of the catastrophe that changed the country forever. The Other Side of the War reveals the war as experienced by the thousands of women volunteered to work in hospitals and for the Sanitary Commission, the organization that advocated better practices and lobbied for increased supplies. 

Katharine Prescott Wormeley was one of those volunteers, an American nurse in the Civil War, as well as author, editor, and and one of America’s best-known translators of French language literary works. 

Her letters from the period of the Peninsular Campaign of 1862, collected here, provide a warm, witty, and at times heartbreaking view of the hardworking women to whom so much was owed by the soldiers and the nation.

Not good as an audiobook

It was a nice try. But at only 4 and a half hours plus, it lags immediately. It’s like listening to a series of letters or journal entries. But to wok one has little idea. And they’re repetitive. The narrator has a most pleasant, lovely voice, so at least that makes it soothing in spots.
