Biography of an unusual and fascinating American woman who was a medical doctor during the American Civil War--the only recipient of the Medal of Honor. Turned away at every try, she volunteered and persisted to become a war surgeon and was thwarted by male MDs who did want a woman in that role. There is little written that survives on her, she did not write a diary for instance, so was the author factual? From the author's conclusions, I learned a lot about 19th century USA while listening to this audiobook.
