About this item

This historical study looks at nine newspapers that were written and edited by injured Union soldiers in military hospitals. Each chapter describes the founding and evolution of a hospital and its role in providing health care to soldiers during the war, then summarizes the development of each newspaper and analyzes the reporting on battlefield events and the treatment of wounds, as well as each newspaper’s writing on moral instructions and political opinion, humor, relationship advice, and the needs of disabled veterans. Titles of the newspapers include Armory Square Hospital Gazette, The Cripple, Hammond Gazette, The Cartridge Box, and Voice of the Soldier. Appendices give data on hospitals and newspapers. The book contains b&w historical photos and illustrations, plus b&w photos of newspaper pages. Author Ira Spar is affiliated with the Society of Civil War Surgeons.
