Nurses in the Spanish-American War

Nurses in the Spanish-American War is a virtual exhibition showcasing materials from The Military Women's Memorial Collection which illustrate the vital role of contract nurses in the Spanish-American War. These nurses laid the groundwork for the creation of the Army Nurse Corps which later paved the way for the full participation of servicewomen in the nation's defense.

Thank you to Iron Mountain’s Living Legacy Initiative for digitizing the Military Women's Memorial Spanish-American War collections.
