Michigan state relief association ministering to wounded at white House, Virginia There were various relief associations besides the Sanitary and Christian Commissions which did extremely efficient work. Here are some women from the West who are not only cooking on their stove in the open air, and broaching their boxes and baskets of delicacies, but seem to have cheered up the wounded soldier boys mightily. The soldier under the flag, with the girl in the white frock and little straw hat nestling close to him, appears far from discontented. The big sign ‘Michigan’ over the entrance to the tent on which one can see the words ‘Michigan Headquarters,’ partially concealed, must have been a beacon of hope to many of the wounded soldiers from the far West of that day. The stoves and pans and kettles show that the inner man was cared for.
