    All Civil War nurses.

    Sr. Cecelia was a Daughter of Charity @ Emmitsburg.

    I don't have a religious order for Sr. Joseph. Possibly a Mercy sister.

    A period image of "God's Geese".

    Then there's the Nuns of the Battlefield Memorial in D.C. near St. Matthew's Cathedral:



    The nuns represented on the relief are from the Sisters of St. Joseph, Carmelites, Dominican Order, Ursulines, Sisters of the Holy Cross, Sisters of the Poor of St. Francis, Sisters of Mercy, Congregation of the Sisters of Our Lady of Mercy, Daughters of Charity of St. Vincent de Paul, Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Sisters of Providence of Saint Mary-of-the-Woods, and Congregation of Divine Providence.

    Asked and answered, from the Provincial Archives at Emmitsburg:

    "Until 1964 the Daughters of Charity had one and only one habit which they wore for all their works. The wide-winged cornette that you are probably familiar with is what they would have worn during their Civil War service, as it is what they wore for all their service."
