Abstract:

Papers, 1861-1867. The bulk of the collection consists of receipts and requisitions, dated 1864. They list supplies provided by the Sanitary Commission: food, clothing, tobacco, wine, and other supplies for the sick. Many of are on preprinted forms, often with Army of the Potomac letterhead, but there are also informally written requests on small scraps of paper, usually for just one or two items. There are also some requests from individual soldiers, and a request from a chaplain for wine to celebrate Communion. Many of the receipts and requisitions are dated from Petersburg, Va. The collection also includes rosters of people employed by the Sanitary Commission in 1865; a booklet to record money raised for the Brooklyn and Long Island Fair in Aid of the United States Sanitary Commission; some lithographed ephemera related to the Fair; an account of stock at the Commission's Norfolk, Va. depot in May 1864; a few letters on administrative matters; and a long letter written to Frank Moore in 1867, by an unnamed woman in Cairo, Ill., about her experiences as a nurse during the Civil War. She describes the beginning of the war in Chicago, her diffidence in beginning her work, and her experiences nursing the sick and wounded after the Battle of Belmont and the Battle of Shiloh.
