Women Behind These WallsI lived in this house during the great battle but my real adventure happened on a farm a short distance south of town. I was only 16 years old at the time and when my neighbor, Mrs. Shriver, asked for my help, I was eager to help her. We walked to her father's farm and I was only intending to be gone from home for a short time. I ended up being away from my family for seven days! My mother hardly recognized me when I came home because while I was at the Weikert farm, I became a nurse.
