The Women's Fight: The Civil War's Battles For Home, Freedom, and Nation
- Society & Culture, The 20th Century – The Present
A bold new history of women during the Civil War
In this brilliant and broadly conceived book, Thavolia Glymph provides a comprehensive new history of women's roles and lives in the Civil War: North and South, white and black, slave and free.
Glymph focuses on the ideas and ideologies that drove women's actions, allegiances, and politics. We encounter women as they stood their ground, moved into each other's territory, sought and found common ground, and fought for vastly different principles. However, Glymph makes clear that the women's experiences were not new to the mid-nineteenth century; rather, many of them drew on memories of previous conflicts, like the American Revolution and the War of 1812, to make sense of the Civil War's disorder and death.
