MARY WALKER The first female recipient of the United States Medal of Honor signed this card in ink Signature: "Mary E. Walker, M.D./Washington D.C./March 28th '84", 4x2½ card. The first woman to be commissioned a surgeon in the Union Army in the Civil War, Dr. Mary E. Walker (1832-1919) was awarded the Medal of Honor in 1865. She is the only woman to receive this award, the highest military award given by the U.S. government. She was captured by the Confederate Army in 1864 while treating Confederate soldiers. They accused her of being a spy, but eventually released her as part of an exchange with the Union Army. Later in life, she became a prominent social reformer, engaging in the abolition movement and the feminist movement. She was particularly passionate about dress reform, insisting on wearing pants and shirts rather than dresses. On verso of a black-bordered personal visiting card of "Robert S. Hatcher". Dr. Walker's autograph is scarce in any form. Fine condition.
