An example from the text is, “A strange day, but I did my best; and when I put mother’s little black shawl round the boy while he sat up panting for breath, he smiled and said, ‘You are real motherly ma’am.’” This shows the reader Louisa’s contribution because she is a very comforting and supporting nurse. She makes sure that all of her patients stay calm and feel welcomed.

One last example from the text is, “A solemn time, but I’m glad to live in it; and am sure it will do me good whether I come out alive or dead.” This is a clear illustration of Alcott’s contribution to the Civil War because it emphasizes how dedicated she was to helping the soldiers who were, unfortunately, wounded in the war. She is very selfless and is always thinking about what 's best for the patients.
