LEADERSHIP: After the Battle

For months after the Battle of Antietam ended, nurses, relief workers and civilian caregivers including a local 17-year old, a 26 year old nurse from DC and a 42 year old nurse from Philadelphia cared for hundreds of sick and wounded Union solders here.   This tent-hospital served from Sept, 1862 - May 1863, extended over many acres of grove and farm land,  through the hot autumn and cold winter months.
