Mercy Street is a medical drama set during the Civil War. The show follows two volunteer nurses, one a Union nurse, the other a Confederate. Both work in the Mansion House, a hotel turned into a hospital in an occupied town in Virginia. As the war rages on, the two women must attempt to come to terms with their opposing positions in the war, while also working together in order to treat the wounded soldiers and contend with other issues such as race discrimination and the use or misuse of modern medicine in the hospital.
