Summary
With the country embroiled in civil war in 1862, a group of women formed the Basket Brigade and boarded trains to minister to Union Soldiers transferring from overflowing hospitals in the South to northerly locations. The Basket Brigade offered fried chicken, pickled peaches, pound cakes, and other dainties to men who hadn't eaten a home-cooked meal since enlisting. The woman of Decatur, Illinois, served nearly two thousand meals to wounded soilders. Join Lucy, Sarah and Zona, three compassionate women who put aside their own heartache to care for wounded heroes -- each finding love along the way
