Mary Seacole was a Jamaican nurse who risked her own life to treat the wounded in the Crimean War. As Mary was black, Florence Nightingale turned her away several times, so she set up her own 'British Hotel' and worked round the clock to nurse the soldiers. Often she would go out into the field to treat them too. A remarkable woman who is, at last, getting some recognition for her hard and dangerous work.
