Jan 22nd, 2020

Women in the American Civil War by Giesberg and Miller. Kent State University Press.Check out this great review of Giesberg and Miller’s Women and the American Civil War: North-South Counterpoints at Reviews in History. 

“The editors and the assembled authors upend previous understandings of Civil War era women ‘as heroes, angels, or martyrs’. Rather, they seek to ‘uncover the complex women’s self-emancipation, healing, and commemorative work’ while simultaneously making ‘room for women whose wartime actions are less commendable: self-serving, perhaps violent; and criminal, even’. Moving thematically and chronologically, these ‘series of investigations,’ reveal these women ‘as complicated and fully human.”
