Fun Fact!: Dorothea Dix, depicted as “Dragon Dix” on the PBS mini-series Mercy Street, was an actual historical figure.  As head of Union Army nurses, she set strict requirements of those who would be allowed to nurse.  “Matronly persons of experience, good conduct, or superior education and serious disposition, will always have preference; habits of neatness, order, sobriety, and industry, are prerequisites.”  Women had to be 35-50 years of age, “dress plainly, and while connected with the service without ornaments of any sort.”
