Drawing from a wealth of poignant letters, diaries, slave narratives, and other accounts, the author provides a social and cultural history in this volume of the diverse communities of Southern women during the Civil War: the heroic African-American women who struggled for freedom, the tireless nurses who faced gruesome duties, the intriguing handful who donned uniforms, and those women who spied and even died for the Confederacy.
