Caption: Mary Walker (1832-1919). 1869 engraving of the US surgeon, feminist and women's rights campaigner Mary Edwards Walker. Walker received her medical degree from Syracuse Medical College in 1855. She was awarded the Medal of Honour for her service in the US Civil War (1861-1865). She served in the Union Army in several battles, first as a nurse and later as the first-ever female US Army Surgeon. After the war, she was involved in the temperance movement and the women's rights movement. She would often wear men's clothes, and campaigned for dress reform for women.
