Taking place at the Mansion House Hospital in the Union occupied city of Alexandria, Virginia during the early days of the Civil War, Mercy Street follows the experiences of those on both sides of the conflict, including nurse Mary Phinney, surgeon Jedidiah Foster, and the wealthy Green family. Starring Mary Elizabeth Winstead, Josh Radnor, Gary Cole, McKinley Belcher III, and a varied cast of excellent actors, this is definitely a suggested series for those interested in the American Civil War or medical dramas.
Some suggested watch-a-likes if you’ve already viewed this series include:

Have you been faithfully following the conventions on TV this summer? Last month, Season 4 of House of Cards was released to DVD. Frank and Claire Underwood have always been a strong political team. This season, they have become even greater adversaries as their ambitions are now at odds with each other. I can’t wait for Season 5!
