“A Vast Field of Suffering and Misery:” Florence Nightingale at Scutari

The mid-19th century popular press enabled the Crimean War to become the first conflict in which news from the field of battle was reported back swiftly to a waiting British population. The lack of care for soldiers and the conditions of the base hospitals so appalled the general public that action had to be taken. The true conditions of the infamous barracks hospital at Scutari will be examined, not just through the eyes of Nightingale herself, but from the point of view of her team of nurses, the findings of a Sanitary Commission, and the writings of the Reverend Sydney Godolphin Osbourne.

Speaker: Natasha McEnroe, Director, the Florence Nightingale Museum

This event is FREE, but registration is required.
