was almost forty years old when she discovered that people,
especially poor people, with mental illness were "confined in
cages, closets, cellars, stalls, pens...chained, naked, beaten with
rods, and lashed into obedience." Outraged by this knowledge,
Dix led a forty-year crusade for the humane treatment of people
with mental illness. She took her crusade to Scotland, Italy,
and Russia. During the Civil War, she served as the
Superintendent of the Female Nurses of the Army, as such she had
more authority and power than any other women had had in the
military prior to and during the Civil War. After the war,
she resumed her crusade. When Dorothea Dix died in 1887,
people around the world honored her.
