about this item

A brisk survey of competing and challenging roles for African American and white women during the Civil War and the struggle to capture this legacy within the current academic and historical climate. From women disguising themselves as soldiers, to women safeguarding the plantation for men in the Confederate ranks, to women fleeing those very same plantations, this book offers key insights into these women and their heroic struggles, and how the academy is weighing their contributions.
