Mercy Street is an American period medical drama television series created by Lisa Wolfinger and David Zabel.
New England widow Mary is sent as the new head nurse to an Alexandria hotel owned by the Southern Green family which is repossessed as a Union military hospital, much to their dislike. Doctors Hale and Foster disagree on the use of modern medicine and whether to treat Confederate wounded soldiers with the same attention as Union. The Green family’s oldest daughter, Emma sneaks into the hospital to acquire news about her “beau” Frank Stringfellow and finds her little sister Alice’s beau, Tom Fairfax instead. Free man Samuel Diggs secretly performs an emergency surgery that’s covered up by Mary.
