VETERAN: American Civil War Nurse
On the outbreak of the War of the Rebellion, Daniel Carlisle was unable to enter the military service on account of disability from poor health and old age. His wife, Hannah L. Carlisle, who was intensely patriotic, felt it was her duty to take his place. She volunteered as a nurse and left her home 14 NOV 1861, for St. Louis, where she was assigned to the Regimental Hospital. On 14 JUL 1862 she was assigned to Post Hospital No. 1 at Columbus, KY. Just before this she had charge of a Hospital boat for a few weeks and as the boat was old and leaky she worked in water to her knees for ten days or more. She remained at the Post Hospital at Columbus until the close of the war, except for two months when she was stationed at Paducah, KY. Her daughter, Arabella, was with her at Columbus for two years and was in the hospital with her mother when the Confederates bombarded the city, her mother having refused to leave the sick and wounded in her charge, when advised to leave on account of the danger of capture by the Confederates. After the close of the war she entered the Freedmans Department as Teacher and Superintendent and served in this capacity until 03 JUL 1866. She joined the M. E. Church at the age of sixteen and donated in membership until her death. She was a member of the Women's Christian Temperance Union and the Woman's Relief Corp., and took a very prominent part in Temperance, Religious and Grand Army of the Republic Work, and was well known in these circles in Buchanan, MI., Deadwood, SD., Council Bluffs and Sioux City, IA. As she received a nurses pension in her later years, her record of service can readily be found in the Archives of the Pension Dept at Washington, DC. (This was copied from a family history written by W. W. Osborn, husband of the above mentioned Arabella).
