- Introduced in A Trilogy: Women in the Civil War, and announced in this G2G post, we want to identify, profile and remember Nurses in the United States Civil War era .
- The United States War Between the States, aka the United States Civil War, was the first time women were allowed to serve their country; caring for wounded in hospitals, battlefield encampments, and civilian homes were the only way women could officially serve in the war effort. Please see a brief history. (Right click to open the link in a new tab.)
- While A Trilogy: Women in the United States Civil War Era is about women, we don't discriminate here! We want to honor the men serving as nurses in the United States Civil War also. These men and women volunteered their service as nurses between 12 April 1861 and 9 May 1865.

A Trilogy: Women in the Civil War: Parts Two and Three
- On WikiTree, it is effortless and easy to go down a rabbit hole, and in extreme cases, a rabbit quarry. Through the initial research for nurses, we discovered a myriad of websites about women, who were not nurses, but impassioned to participate in the Civil War for their side's success, and helping those subject to the cause of the war to freedom.
- These women (exclusively - not including men) also deserve to be located, profiled and honored in WikiTree. Two free space page projects are in development:
- A Trilogy: Part Two: Women Spies in the United States Civil War]] is introduced here, and the project is on this page.
- A Trilogy: Part Three: Women Soldiers in the United States Civil War, introduced here. The project page is this page.
- If either of these topics calls to you, we could use your assistance. Review the first comment on either page to participate.
