We hear readings penned by a 15-year-old girl who witnessed the Civil War battle in her village. Tillie Pierce saw the fighting and spent time tending to the wounded in a neighbor’s farmhouse. Later in her life she wrote the book At Gettysburg: Or What a Girl Saw and Heard of The Battle.
Plus, Joe Richman and Radio Diaries bring us the voices of two widows of Civil War veterans. In 1998, Daisy Anderson and Alberta Martin told how they met and married their husbands, and the lives they lived with civil war veterans.
