Fascinating true stories of some of the most interesting and influential personalities of the Civil War. Their heroic deeds and selfless acts ranged from caring for the wounded to fighting on the battlefields. Included are Harriet Tubman, Belle Boyd, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, and many others.
The Civil War is most often described as one in which brother fought against brother. But the most devastating war fought on American soil was also one in which women demonstrated heroic deeds, selfless acts, and courage beyond measure. Women mobilized soup kitchens and relief societies. Women cared for wounded soldiers. Women were effective spies. And it is estimated that 300 women fought on the battlefields, usually disguised as men. The most fascinating Civil War women include:
"The poor fellow sprang from my hands and fell back quivering in the agonies of death. A bullet had passed between my body and the right arm which supported him, cutting through my sleeve and passing through his chest from shoulder to shoulder." ―Clara Barton, founder of the American Red Cross
"We were all amused and disgusted at the sight of a thing that nothing but the debased and depraved Yankee nation could produce. A woman] was dressed in the full uniform of a Federal surgeon. She was not good looking, and of course had tongue enough for a regiment of men." ―Captain Benedict J. Semmes, describing Mary Walker, M.D.
