Author Theresa Kaminski discusses her latest book, Dr. Mary Walker’s Civil War. In this book, Theresa details the life of Mary Walker, an extraordinary 19th century woman who was not afraid to speak her mind. Mary Walker was a medical physician, a vocal suffragist and women’s rights advocate, and the only woman to ever receive the Medal of Honor. As an academic historian, Theresa Kaminski has made it her mission to write books about scrappy American women who may have faded from our collective memory.
