As a result of the pressing needs of the hour, the Sanitary Commission and the Christian Commission were organized. Their good deeds in supplying nurses and caring for invalids are well documented. Not as well known are the labors of the Catholic Sisters, who brought to their aid in caring for the sick and wounded, the experience, training and discipline of the religious bodies with which they were affiliated. This work aims to shed light on their work.
