Salome Myers was a young girl in Gettysburg when the Civil War invaded her town. Sally put aside her fears and pitched in to help the large number of wounded soldiers as a nurse. The diaries she left behind give a glimpse of life in Gettysburg and the role many women played during the war to comfort the casualties. We see through her eyes the first hand and very human affects of the battles - the side of war rarely discussed or portrayed: as the Gettysburg battle rages, Miss Myers unwittingly becomes a nurse to the wounded in her own home and in nearby field hospitals. The 1863 Battle of Gettysburg is only half the story. What happened in the town to its citizens is the oh-so-important other half not getting its just due. We also become privy to her life after the excitement at Gettysburg settled down: her marriage and ultimate widow hood shortly thereafter.

Myers was sent to Andersonville Prison Camp, where he died on September 27, 1864. Sallie later married and gave birth to a son Henry who became a prominent physician and supporter of the first hospital established in Gettysburg. Sallie lived out her days where she grew up, apparently never resentful of the war that brought death to her doorstep. These were bitter days," she recalled in 1909, "but memories of them are softened when one considers the friendships that were made.
