Nurse and Spy is a record of events which transpired in the experience of military life in camp, field and hospital during the Civil War. The author participated in numerous battles, including Bull Run, Williamsburg, Antietam and Fredericksburg, in the capacity of “Spy” and as “Field Nurse” for over two years.

While in the “Secret Service” as a “Spy”, she penetrated the enemy’s lines, in various disguises, no less than eleven times; always with complete success and without detection. Her efficient labors in the different Hospitals as well as her arduous duties as “Field Nurse,” embrace many thrilling and touching incidents.

“The moral character of the work, being true to virtue, patriotism and philanthropy, together with the fine embellishment and neat mechancial execution, will, we trust, render it an interesting and welcome visitor at every fireside.”
