An exceptionally well-preserved copy of the memoir of Confederate Nurse, Fannie Beers.

Dedicated "To the boys who wore the Gray, whether the lofty or the lowly; equally to the surviving heroes who stand before the world in the light of a glory never surpassed, and to the martyrs whose patriot blood and sacred graves have forever sanctified the land they loved." 

A very unique perspective on the War, being confederate, female, and medical. She recounts in vivid detail [and with flourish] battles in Alabama, her work at Buckner Hospital, work at Newman Georgia, the unique role and character of women working during the War, the Battle of the Wilderness, Fenner's Louisiana Batter, Injury of a Young Color-Bearer, etc. . . A fascinating read.  

The first edition last offered at auction in 1954.
