   schema:reviewBody "During the Civil War women did a lot more than keep the home fires burning. Expanding on his Patriots in Disguise, Richard Hall draws on a wealth of regimental histories, newspaper archives, and a host of previously unreported accounts to show that women served in more capacities and in greater number -- perhaps several thousand -- than has previously been known. They served in the infantry, cavalry, and artillery and as spies, scouts, saboteurs, smugglers, and frontline nurses. From all walks of life, they followed husbands and lovers into battle, often in male disguise that remained undiscovered until they were wounded (or gave birth), and endured the same hardships and dangers as did their male counterparts. Hall presents the most complete portrait yet available of these courageous women -- including Sarah Bradbury, Lizzie Compton, Frances Hook, and Confederate spy Loreta Janeta Velazquez -- many of whom earned the praise of the male soldiers they served with and rose through the ranks to become sergeants, even officers. Through his investigation of specific case histories, he has authenticated many undocumented reports while debunking myths and exposing previously published errors about the subject. The book also includes a biographical directory of nearly 400 women participants and dozens of Civil war documents attesting to women's role in the war." ;
