Anna B. Schram was Department President of the Association of Army Nurses. During the Civil War, she volunteered as an unpaid nurse under Drs. McKenzie and Haynes.
She was stationed at a Union Army camp outside of Fredericksburg, where she remained for 10 months caring for the sick and wounded of Antietam and South Mountain until illness forced her to return home.
