Reminiscences of My Life in Camp, by Susie King Taylor, 1902.

Item Description

“I taught a great many of the comrades in Company E to read and write, when they were off duty. Nearly all were anxious to learn. I was very happy to know my efforts were successful in camp, and also felt grateful for the appreciation of my services. I gave my services willingly for four years and three months without receiving a dollar. I was glad, however, to be allowed to go with the regiment, to care for the sick and afflicted comrades.”
