The Superintendent of Army Nurses, Dorthea Dix, took one look at Cornelia Hancock and told her to go back home. Rather than argue with "Dragon Dix" Cornelia hid in a baggage car. The date was July 5, 1863, and the train was headed for Gettysburg, where the Civil War's bloodiest battle had just ended.
