My Story of the War

Livermore, Mary A.

A.D. Worthington and Company, Hartford, Connecticut USA, 1889. An excellent copy in maroon cloth binding with elaborate gold gilt title work and trim to spine. Profusely illustrated with steel engravings of the period. Full Title My Story of the War: A Woman's Narrative of Four Years Experience... As Nurse in the Union Army, and in Relief Work at Home, in Hospitals, Camps, and at the Front, During the War of Rebellion. With Anecdotes, Pathetic Incidents, and Thrilling Reminiscences, Portraying The Lights and Shadows of Hospital Life, and The Sanitary Service of the War. Superbly Illustrated. Large octavo, red cloth stamped in gilt, 700pp, 8 full-page color-lithograph plates, 8 full-page engraved plates, a frontis portrait of the Author, and another of Women of the War. Condition: The book is in exceptional condition given its age. No marks, no foxing, the binding is good, the gilt is bright on the cover. The tissue gaurded engravings are superb and include an illustration of "Michigan Bridget," a woman who is alleged to have carried Union battle flags onto the battlefield. About the Author: Mary A. Livermore, born Mary Ashton Rice, (1820 – 1905) was an American journalist, abolitionist, and advocate of women's rights. When the American Civil War broke out, she became connected with the United States Sanitary Commission, headquarters at Chicago, performing a vast amount of labor of all kinds—organizing auxiliary societies, visiting hospitals and military posts, contributing to the press, answering correspondence, and other things incident to the work done by that institution. She helped organize the 1863 great fair in Chicago, and she received the original draft of the Emancipation Proclamation from President Lincoln for her efforts. Livermore encountered women disguised as men fighting alongside soldiers in the Union Army. After the war, Livermore devoted herself to the promotion of women's suffrage (along with Lucy Stone and Julia Ward Howe ) and the temperance movement.
