Dear Cleburne et al.,

Although not specifically meant for soldiers, there is a very large monument to the women of the CW in Washington, D. C., but most are clueless. Any guess as to what or where it might be?



The American Red Cross National Headquarters building comes to mind.

This monument, although not necessarily for women soldiers in the CW, is for "sisters" that worked as nurses.

I wrote about the Daughters of Charity in my book, "Battlefield Angels." Nearly 300 of these women served in the war as nurses, cooks, apothecaries, hospital administrators and more. They were the most-experienced nurses in the country at the time the war began and their help proved to be very important to saving the lives of soldiers. Because of the quality of care that these women provided, they were highly respected by both Confederate and Union soldiers.
