The United States Sanitary Commission was a voluntary organisation which supported the Army's Medical Services. Under the guide of his secretary, Frederick Law Olmsted, the U.S.S.C. coordinated the work of thousands of civilian volunteers in tending to the wounded, collecting medicine and supplies of all sorts for the purpose and organising welfare facilities for both sick and healthy soldiers, all over the Union's States.
