Mary Attends Summer TCA Panel

Mary had a busy day today promoting for the first time her upcoming PBS TV show, Mercy Street. The six-part miniseries follows the lives of two volunteer nurses on opposing sides of the war — New England abolitionist Mary Phinney (Winstead) and Confederate supporter Emma Green (Hannah James) — and is inspired by memoirs and letters from real doctors and nurses from that time. It takes place in a luxury hotel-turned hospital in Alexandria, Virginia — the longest occupied confederate town during the war — and explores those struggling to save lives while managing their own hardships.
