There will be plenty of cake & ice cream to commemorate the 200th birthday of this “Cyclone in Calico.” She helped set up 300 field hospitals and tended to 19 battle fields during the Civil War from 1861-1865. After the war she helped war veterans receive pensions. She worked tirelessly until her death.
