[Letter from S. C. Page, September 24, 1864]

Description: Letter from S. C. Page to friend discussing her travels to hospitals to tend to wounded soldiers from Louisiana. She took with her sacks of clothes and letters and gave money when she could. She was appalled at the injuries she saw and the lack of clothing some men received while they were hospitalized. Page went to multiple hospitals and introduced herself to the Louisianan soldiers to give them company. She earned the nickname "Lady Bountiful" during her travels.
