Enhanced by excerpts from primary documents as well as numerous illustrations, this collection of essays by some of the country’s most prominent Civil War historians intends to move women to the center stage of Civil War history. Topics range from the experiences of female slave contrabandists, to the lives of rural refugee women, to the effects of the postwar era on African-American women, to the Civil War’s legacy in women’s suffrage movements.
