Austin Blair Camp No. 7

I am not accustomed to the use of the language of eulogy: I have never studied the art of paying compliments to women; but I must say, that if all that has been said by orators and poets since the creation of the world in praise of women were applied to the women of America, it would not do them justice for their conduct during this war. I will close by saying, God bless the women of America. ~ Abraham Lincoln

"I have a commission from the Lord God Almighty to do all I can for every miserable creature who comes in my way; he is always sure of two friends, God and me."
~ Mother Bickerdyke
(Of whom, when his staff complained about her, General Sherman said: "She ranks me. I canít do a thing in the world.")
