Widow Annie Turner Wittenmyer spent the years of the American Civil War in the thick of exploding shells, shattered bodies, exhausted souls, and the great figures of the war. She was an advocate for better medical treatment and better diets for fighting men and personally took her cause to Ulysses S. Grant and Abraham Lincoln.She spares no detail and does not attempt to provide a history of the war. Her story is intimately human and will draw you in like few other memoirs.
