Nurse Rebecca Usher of Hollis wrote an account of President Abraham Lincoln's visit with to a military hospital at City Point, Virginia, just before Richmond fell and Confederate General Robert E. Lee surrendered in 1865.
The account, written on ledger paper, is a single sheet and it is not clear whether it was part of a larger account. It appears to be a recollection.
