Women of the War

RETURN TO WOMEN'S INDEX

Kate Cumming

Born: 1828/1835? - Edinburgh, Scotland

Died: June 5 1909 - Birmingham, Alabama

   At the outbreak of the war she offered her services as a nurse, and nursed faithfully from Cornith to the end. Her journal tells us how much nursing was a social affair rather than a medical, how much it depended on the help and generosity of the women of the South.

Note: Unlike most women nurses, who served only temporarily, Cumming continued as an active nurse for the duration of the war.
