Supplies for Injured Soldiers

Several Civil War soldiers were treated in the hospitals in Evansville, Indiana. A card of thanks was published from the Evansville mayor on March 17, 1862, in the Evansville Daily Journal.


Particularly mentioned as being appreciated were packages containing supplies for the sick and wounded from the ladies of Russellville, Illinois. The mayor wanted it known that the railroad and the steamboat men would carry such articles free of charge, and the local city draymen would take pleasure in delivering the same to any of the hospitals.
