Civil War Women of Compassion and Courage

March 10 @ 2:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Rich Rosenthal, president of the North Jersey Civil War Round Table, will tell stories of wartime survival, not from cannons and bullets, but from life itself in the Morristown and Morris Township Library’s Lower Level Meeting Room at 2 p.m. on Sunday, March 10th.

Meet the women left at home who must provide for their families without adequate means of support. Women such as: New Jersey’s own Cornelia Hancock, who defiantly goes to Gettysburg after being rejected as a nurse for being too pretty; Mary Ann Bickerdyke, who sets up hospitals and kitchens, even following Gen. Sherman through the mountains of Georgia on the way to Atlanta; and Sara Pryor, living through the privation and destruction of the south, still has the courage to defy General Sheridan and demand rations for the starving families in her community.

All are welcome to this free program supported by The Friends of the Library.
