The Boys in White : The Experience of a Hospital Agent in and Around Washington
Julia Susan Wheelock attended Kalamazoo College, majoring in Latin and higher Math. She went South to help care for a wounded brother. She remained and endeavored to care for other wounded soldiers for nearly three years. This was during a period when it was thought that a lady could not be associated with the army without losing her standard of moral excellence, but during her hospital and army experience, she was uniformly treated with the utmost courtesy and respect. She served in the Michigan Soldiers Relief Association during the U. S. Civil War as a nurse from September, 1862 to July, 1865 at various hospitals in and around Washington, D. C. Julia was inducted into the Michigan's Womens Hall of Fame in October, 2002, for her selfless, tireless efforts during the Civil War. Additional notes and research by the editor are included, as well as the "Report of the Executive Committee" of the Michigan Soldiers' Relief Association for 1864 and 1865, detailing her accomplishments.
