Lunch and Learn: Susie King Taylor’s Civil War

Here’s a fine presentation on Susie King Taylor from the American Civil War Museum’s Kelly Hancock. Susie King Taylor was an African-American woman who married a USCT soldier and wrote her memoirs after the Civil War.

The video’s description reads, “Susie King Taylor was the only African-American woman to publish a memoir about her wartime experiences. Interpretation and Programs Manager Kelly Hancock explores the role she played as both a nurse and teacher with the 33rd United States Colored Troops.”
