Inventors and explorers rub shoulders with political leaders, sports stars, and entertainers from all over the world. From Aristotle to Mark Zuckerberg, to Marie Curie to Pele, all areas of culture, history, industry, sports, entertainment, and more are covered. Perfect for book reports, school projects, or anytime reading to satisfy and educate curious minds.
Seacole ran a restaurant/bar/store/takeaway and catering service for officers. See www.maryseacole.info/ for more information (with relevant sources). She was not a “pioneering nurse,” that was Florence Nightingale.
Your picture of Seacole has her in a dark dress with a white apron, carrying a large bottle of medicine. She never dressed so drably, but favored bright colors and ribbons, as a restaurant proprietress would. (And so she said in her memoir, Wonderful Adventures of Mrs Seacole in Many Lands).
She did not go to England to volunteer to nurse, but to see about her gold mining stocks, acquired when running a business in Panama serving men going to the California Gold Rush. Only after Nightingale and her nurses had left did she decide that she would like to be a nurse, too. She was too late to apply and did not, except by casually dropping in on government offices.
Seacole’s business was for officers, as she made clear in her memoir. Her battlefield experiences were more limited than you suggest--for she missed the first three, major, battles of the war. As for Nightingale looking down on her “social status and mixed-race background,” this is a nasty, groundless, accusation. Any evidence? The only accounts from the time of their interaction show it to have been amicable and respectful. Give us a reference if you want to claim otherwise!
