CoddingtonRonaldS.PortraitIn his newest book, Faces of Civil War Nurses, Ronald S. Coddington turns his attention to the experiences of 77 women who provided care during the war as nurses, aid workers, and vivandières. 

Their personal narratives are as unique as fingerprints: each provides a distinct entry point into the larger social history of the brutal and bloody conflict. Using identified tintypes and cartes de visite of women on both sides of the war, many of them never before published, Coddington uncovers the personal histories of each intrepid individual. 

The Society is pleased to welcome Ronald Coddington in this virtual presentation as he highlights the lives of these Civil War nursing heroes.

Ronald S. Coddington is an editor at The Chronicle of Higher Education and the editor and publisher of Military Images magazine. He is the author of a series of five volumes about the Civil War. Visit his website for additional information.

This event co-sponsored by the Society and Fairport Public Library.is free and open to the public.

Registration is required through the Fairport Public Library and is limited. To register, visit the Library website or call the library at 585-223-9091.
