Inscription. She was someone who was greatly respected, both within and outside of the congregation. A Civil War physician and historian wrote of Mother Angela: "In every army and battlefield in the west she and her sisters were found. She established field hospitals as well as several permanent hospitals. Her influence in Washington was all powerful both because of her family connections and because of the recognition of her wonderful work for the sick and wounded soldiers. Sometimes even when generals failed to secure needed aid, Mother Angela would make flying trips to Washington and the aid was forthcoming."
