The Physician – Civil War Nurse Susie King Taylor
Jim Ben
Born into slavery and taught to read in secret, Mrs. Taylor escaped at age 14. During the Civil War she worked for the Union forces as a teacher, laundress, and nurse. Timepiece Theatre’s one-woman theatrical performance will focus on Taylor’s wartime experiences, and the follow-up discussion will explore disease, medicine, and surgical methods of the 19th century.
