The Death of a Soldier

The Going Public ... in Shorts Series
By Louisa May Alcott
Narrated by Karen White / 21 minutes

Before Louisa May Alcott achieved national fame with Little Women, she received success and recognition for Hospital Sketches, which was published in 1863. The book is based on her experience as a Civil War nurse at a Union hospital in Georgetown. In "The Death of a Soldier," an excerpt from the fourth chapter, she recounts the final days of a young Virginian blacksmith named John. Told through his nurse, Periwinkle, who stands by his side until his death, John never wavers in his desire to return to his post as a soldier and fulfill his duty.Proceeds from sale of this title go to Reach Out and Read, an innovative literacy advocacy organization.
