She is famed for being the founder of modern nursing. Being of 'higher' birth it is doubtful whether she shared in the privatisations of the soldiers she cared for although she no doubt put herself at great risk of typhus and cholera. See also Mary Seacole (mother seacole) a Jamaican born nurse who was very well respected by the wounded she cared for.
