This is Alcott's account of her experiences as a nurse during the Civil War in a Washington D.C. hospital. The sketches are taken ""from letters hastily written in the few leisure moments of a very busy life,"" and so maintain the immediacy and force of their author.

    By Poor, poor, pitiful me
    More than "Sketches", read this beautifully written book as a small bit of history of the Civil War. L.M.A. makes the scenes come alive in your mind, submerging it into the people and settings of this little bit of heaven. Cris Sullivan, Grateful Reader
