Photo Contest #2 for "Notre Dame in the Civil War" - "Nuns of the Battlefield" in DC!
Following up on yesterday's post regarding the photo contest for the statue of Father Corby at Gettysburg, the next photo contest is for a photo of the "Nuns of the Battlefield" monument in Washington, DC!
I am a chemist by training and profession and currently work in the Drug Metabolism and Pharmacokinetics department of a biotech company near Houston, TX.
I have always been interested in history, and have been especially interested in the Civil War for the past 15-plus years.
My special interests are in Civil War medicine, Catholic chaplains and sister-nurses, and the intersection of business history and military history.
I have been writing historical pieces for magazines and newspapers for about 10 years. My work has been published in *North & South*, *The Artilleryman*, *Learning Through History*, *World War II*, *Chemical Heritage*, and *Today's Chemist* magazines. My column, "Medical Department," has appeared regularly in *The Civil War News* since September 2000.
My first book, *Lincoln's Labels: America's Best Known Brands and the Civil War* was published by Edinborough Press in Spring 2008. My second book, "Years of Change and Suffering:Modern Perspectives on Civil War Medicine" was published by Edinborough Press in 2009.
