  • La Western Sanitary Commission était une organisation non gouvernementale de secours aux blessés et aux malades de l'Union, basée à Saint-Louis (Missouri), qui opéra à l'ouest du Mississippi pendant toute la durée de la guerre de Sécession. Elle organisa également l'accueil des réfugiés et des esclaves affranchis. Malgré les attaques répétées de la United States Sanitary Commission qui souhaitait en faire une de ses branches régionales, la WSC se vit confier tous les territoires à l'ouest des Alleghany et conserva une totale indépendance de financement et d'action jusqu'à la fin de la guerre.
  • The Western Sanitary Commission was a private agency based in St. Louis that was a rival of the larger U.S. Sanitary Commission. It operated in the west during the American Civil War to help the U.S. Army deal with sick and wounded soldiers. It was led by abolitionists and focused more on the needs of Freedmen.It was founded in St. Louis August 1861 under the protection of General John C. Frémont and under the leadership of Reverend William Greenleaf Eliot (1811-1887) and James E. Yeatman (1818-1901). Its first mission was to care for the wounded from the battle of Wilson's Creek. In its first six weeks it established four large general hospitals with over two thousand beds. It later set up convalescent facilities. A major activity was acquiring adequate stocks of medicines and medical supplies for the hospitals run by the U.S. Army. Working with Dorothea Dix it took charge of finding women to be civilian nurses and nurses' aides in Army facilities.The Western Sanitary Commission generally handled all sanitary affairs west of the Mississippi, and operated on a budget of $50,000 a month (about one-fourth the size of the rival national organization). The money came from private fundraising in the city of St. Louis, as well as from donors in California and New England. Parrish explains it selected nurses, provided hospital supplies, set up several hospitals, and outfitted several hospital ships. It also provided clothing and places to stay for freedmen and refugees, and set up schools for black children. It continued to finance various philanthropic projects until 1886.
