I spoke with Dr. Jim McClurken earlier this week about my potential topic, which was the United States Sanitary Commission.  This was created during the Civil War and consisted of many women who aided the men with their medical needs during the War.  He thought this was a good sart but I would need to centralize the focus of my essay because there are a couple different levels of the Commission and he suggested I focus on one or two.  Also he gave me a few sources where I could begin my research and also mentioned that these sources could lead me to find other sources.  Overall, It was a very productive meeting that pointed me in the right direction.
