This is a 16 slide, highly animated power point presentation on the American Civil War - Key Figures – Phoebe Yates Levy Pember. Each of the slides are editable, so you can modify those to meet your individual needs.
Phoebe Yates Levy Pember is one of the Confederacy’s most celebrated nurses. She joined the Confederate nursing campaign in December 1862 and served as chief matron of the 2nd Division of the Chimborazo Hospital on the outskirts of Richmond, the largest hospital in the Confederacy. She oversaw nursing operations and attended to the housekeeping, dietary needs, and comfort of over 15,000 men!
In addition to her tireless commitment to patient care, she is most famous for waging a one-woman crusade against alcohol abuse at Chimborazo Hospital. Much of the time this meant blocking efforts by the staff to pilfer supplies, especially whiskey, placed under her control and protected by a gun she kept hidden nearby.
The account of her experiences at Chimborazo are recorded in the book, “A Southern Woman’s Story: Life in Confederate Richmond” in 1879.
