Angels of the Battlefield

Angels of the Battlefield

    "This book is a reprint of the original 1897 edition.

    The pre-Civil War era in the United States was a high point in anti-Catholic sentiment in the United States. Nuns with their noticeable habits were easy targets wherever they went and sometime suffered from mob violence.

    It took the tragedy of the Civil War to lift American suspicion of Catholic nuns. Catholic nuns served as nurses to soldiers in both sides of the conflict, and after the famous Battle of Shiloh in Tennessee, they arrived to tend the 5000 wounded men waiting there in the rain. They also set up the initial care for the 50,000 men wounded after Gettysburg.

    This book tells the true story of how Catholic nuns won the good will of others with their courage, excellent skill, and compassion for all those who suffered. It features eye-witness accounts, and actual letters written during this time period. This is truly a remarkable book which reminds us of our proud heritage as American Catholics.

    Softcover, 316 pages."
