    2 thoughts on “Soldier, Nurse and Spy in the Union Army

    1. Sarah Emma Edmonds was a Canadian born woman who is known for serving with the Union Army during the American Civil War.

    2. Emma Edmonds has been my go-to girl for school projects since elementary school, and I admire her greatly. I don't remember as much about her as I should, and I just recently found out that she had written a memoir. Now, it appears there was a reason that this memoir (granted, only a 2-year wartime memoir) never came up in my previous researchings, and it's because she seems to have taken a somewhat fictionalized approach to it. I assume most of stories she tells or passes on are correct, and I [...]

    3. Written after she served as a nurse and spy for the Union in the Civil War, Emma Edmonds(formerly under disguise as Frank Thompson) wrote this memoir to chronicle her exploits and to share the horrors she saw in the war. She has a way with words, and I have cried openly reading some of her passages, particularly when she relates stories of comrades who did brave and selfless acts(like the nurse who allowed himself to be captured by Rebels to stay with his patients who couldn't run with the rest [...]

    4. Odd that there would actually be a thrill in holding an original copy from the first issuance of the book, albeit rebound, from 1865. It's a first hand story of a young woman enlisted in the Union Army as a male and serving as a medic and courier, and allegedly a spy, the latter for which there isn't any "proof" and some supporting the opposite position. Still, whether a true narrative throughout or truth embellished with creative fiction, the fact remains she did serve in the Army for two years [...]

    5. Not a historically perfect account of the author's experiences during the Civil War, but it is a very interesting look at her service from her own perspective. Besides that, it is a very interesting window into what life at that time was generally like for the people involved in the war. The author wasn't the most polished writer, but her prose is reasonably clear and easier to read than a lot of other writing from that era.

    6. I am not sure how much of this to abosorb but I did get a couple of leads from the back of the book which will lead me to uncover more about this exceptional fraud.I think in this book she blows her horn but the historians will reveal her motive.

    7. A heartfelt memoir of what it is like to be in the Union army as a woman, dressed and playing entirely the part of a man.
