Courageous women of the Civil War : soldiers, spies, medics, and more

Cordell, M. R. (Melinda R.), author.

Chicago, Illinois : Chicago Review Press, 2016.

xxiii, 230 pages : illustrations, map ; 23 cm.

"At the outbreak of the Civil War, nearly everybody was caught up in patriotic fervor--men and women, Union and Confederate. Many women supported soldiers through knitting and sewing needed items, growing food, making bandages, gathering medical supplies, and more. But others wished they could be closer to the fight. These women defied society's expectations and bravely chose to take on more dangerous, unconventional roles. [This book] reveals the exploits of 16 of these remarkable women who served as medics, spies, battlefield helpers, and even soldiers on the front lines"--Dust jacket flap.
