"A well-researched and carefully written book bursting with interesting stories about interesting people—most of whom are otherwise fairly anonymous within Civil War scholarship. Together with photographs of their subjects, these miniature biographies work to bring these women (all nurses, relief workers, and care workers) to life."

"An innovative, original, and enjoyable approach to examining women's work in the Civil War."

"Faces of Civil War Nurses utilizes period images to elucidate the great strength and character of women who proved that patriotism was not reserved for the menfolk. Coddington does a fine job of highlighting female heroism in Civil War hospitals and battlefields."
