Abstract:

North, South, black, white, Native American, immigrant-- the women in these micro biographies were wives, mothers, sisters and friends whose purposes ranged from supporting husbands and sons during wartime to counseling President Lincoln on strategy, from tending to the wounded on the battlefield to spiriting away slaves through the Underground Railroad, from donning a uniform and fighting unrecognized alongside the men to working as spies for either side. Monson brings to light the incredible stories of women from the Civil War that remain relevant to our nation today. -- Adapted from jacket.
