Louisa May Alcott

One of my all time favorite books is "Little Women" written by Louisa May Alcott and while she's long dead, today is the anniversary of her birth.

Louisa May Alcott was also a nurse and served on the Union side during the Civil War.  She was active in fighting for the woman's right to vote (a fight that nursing was decidedly NOT generally involved in) and in the temperance movement (we'll have to forgive her that).

Louisa May Alcott (it's hard to say her name without saying the whole thing) published a book of her diary during the Civil War.

While I admit that I do have the book, it is challenging to read and not terribly interesting...Sorry Louisa (Louisa May?)

Happy Birthday Louisa May!
