The Civil War was a great time of stress for the entire nation. Political leaders of both governments had decisions to make, army commanders had battles to win, and solders had blood to lose. When studying the Civil War we look at the causes, the failed compromises to prevent the war, the government officials, and the military campaigns won and lost. So often we overlook such an important factor that would make distinct contributions to the side that their husbands and sons fought on.
This website was created to give an insight on these contributions and the types of roles that women would play in the Civil War.
