  • Emily, justemily

    Said to be of an army hospital nurse, this postmortem photograph shows a young woman holding a book, possibly a small bible or testament. The revenue stamp on the back dates this image to 1864. Annapolis was the site of one of the largest Union Army hospitals during the Civil War, and at least five female nurses died of diseases caught while tending patients there. Three of them died in late 1863 and two died in early 1865.

Civil war medical officer. Possible standing postmortem. Standing postmortems are almost unheard of with adults. This has been closely looked at by The Thanatos Archive. Conclusion? Possible standing postmortem. I propose the possibility of his being tied to a board under his arms. That would allow a 'standing' position if leaned against a stand.

robfromamersfoort (33 months ago | reply) It is indeed shot in 1855 (or maybe 1854). This is Mrs Rogers, a nurse during the Crimean War (like Florence Nightingale). She was the wife of a soldier, and she was nursing, washing and cooking under severe circumstances.
