 The Story of Life at Milwaukee's
National Soldiers' Home



Elizabeth Corbett lived with her family at the Northwestern Branch of the National Home for Disabled Volunteer Soldiers, Milwaukee, from 1891 to 1915—a total of twenty-five years. In an autobiographical sketch composed after she had moved to New York City to pursue her literary career, she wrote, “I suppose I’m the only author in America who was brought up in a Soldiers’ Home....As the only author who knows the ground, I shall some day have to write that book.”

Elizabeth published that book, Out at the Soldiers' Home,  in 1941. This expanded edition of her Soldiers' Home classic includes photographs of the Milwaukee Soldiers’ Home, a foreword by historian James Marten and a selection of Miss Corbett’s correspondence and short poems.

The wider availability of this resource will be welcomed by scholars of the Civil War era. But many others will also find value in Out at the Soldiers’ Home. It is nostalgic but never cloying, breezy but not glib, a reflection of an earlier time, but with modern sensibilities. It honors “those who have borne the battle” by providing a loving but honest look at their lives long after the battle was over.

—James Marten in the Foreword
