TO THE RESCUE!
AFTER THE BATTLE OF MECHANICSVILLE, VA., JUNE 27TH,'62.

AROUSE! Arouse all gallant sons
And to the rescue go,
For many on the battle-field
To-day lie faint and low.
And will you see them one by one,
Like flowers of Summer, fall?
Oh! no, your hearts are better far,
You'll answer to the call.
You'll answer to the call for men
To reinforce the brave,
Who valiant fought and nobly fell
And found a soldier's grave.

M. J. HIGGINS.

City's Civil War 'secret' revealed 

I recently saw a portion of a documentary Sex in the Civil War, shown on The History Channel. It stated that Nashville was the first city in the United States to have legalized prostitution during the Union Army's occupation of Nashville.

As a response to the high percentage of Union soldiers with venereal diseases, prostitution was made legal, with weekly checkups for the prostitutes. Do you have any more information on this? Scoville Walker, former Nashvillian, Atlanta, Ga.

Nashville has not traditionally been associated with bold social experiments. This one appears to have been a strange but true wartime exception.

After its 1862 occupation by Union forces, Nashville saw 100,000 federal troops passing through in less than a year for training before being sent to battle. Some were eventually buried here, and many received treatment at Nashville's 23 military hospitals.

With so many young men around, an increase in sexual activity would not be surprising. Many were headed to what they knew would be war deprivations of all sorts and very likely death or dismemberment.

A segment of Nashville's population rose to meet this demand.

Nashville' 1860 census was different from most in that enumerators took it upon themselves to document prostitution here. While the tally probably left out scores of those so employed, the census that year showed 207 professionals ''not reluctant to call themselves what they really were.''

They ranged from age 15 to 59, but the mean age was 23.

The largest house, at 101-103 N. Front St. (now First Avenue North) was near the steamboat landing where most visitors arrived. Run by Rebecca and Eliza Higgins.

The house had 28 residents, 17 of them prostitutes. Among the rest were a carpenter, a brick mason and eight children.

Total value of this out-of-the-ordinary property, including furnishings, was listed at $25,500 then a quite respectable sum. Most of the 69 houses of ill repute were modest operations of one to three women.

By wartime, many more women had entered the profession here some forced by dire economic circumstance and others by choice. Estimates have ranged above 1,500 in Nashville.

With their activities came the rampant spread of sexually transmitted disease. Syphilis in those days was often fatal, as no reliable cure was known. One drastic measure recommended was injection of salts of mercury, highly toxic and carrying its own risks.

Alarmed Union military officials first tried solving the problem here by rounding up prostitutes and shipping them under guard by train to Louisville, Ky.

Most eventually returned but faced another roundup involving a chartered river steamer. In the month of that cruise a large number of black women had helped meet the unfilled demand with their own flourishing trade.

In desperation, the military decided to license the prostitutes in hopes of controlling their health and preventing the spread of venereal disease to soldiers. The deadline for them to report for testing was Aug. 20, 1863.

Those presenting a ''surgeon's certificate'' and paying $5 got ''a license to practice their profession.'' Those caught without one were subject to a minimum 30 days in the workhouse. By April 30, 1864, at least 352 had been licensed. Medical re-examinations were required every 10-14 days.

The soldiers also were targeted for treatment. By the end of 1864, 2,330 of them had passed through Nashville's ''Soldier's Syphilitic Hospital.'' Thanks to Nashville's legalization, only 30 of the first 999 admitted had contracted disease here.

The History Channel has produced two programs on this topic, Sex (and More Sex) in the Civil War. Tapes of both are still sold through the A&E Television Network.

As a side note, some have wondered whether the Union's Maj. Gen. Joseph Hooker was really the source of the term ''hooker.'' Gen. Hooker was in Chattanooga at one point, helping take Lookout Mountain.

He was known as a leader popular with his men, as well as with the ladies of the evening. In reality, this term for prostitutes appears to have predated him by many years. At the same time, his name is said to have added to its widespread use after the war.
