A Short History of Mary Seacole

Mary Seacole: nurse, herbalist, boarding house proprietor and business woman. This formidable Victorian overcame innumerable hurdles, not least the innate racist attitudes of her time, to provide care for soldiers in the Crimean War, thousands of miles from her home in Jamaica.

The Royal College of Nursing celebrates the bicentenary of her birth in 1805 with this accessible guide to her life which also looks at her impact in the 19th Century and on subsequent nursing history.
