Woman’s Work in the Civil War

“We commit our book, then, to the loyal women of our country, as an earnest and conscientious effort to portray some phases of a heroism which will make American women famous in all the future ages of history; and with the full conviction that thousands more only lacked the opportunity, not the will or endurance, to do, in the same spirit of self-sacrifice, what these have done.”

The story of some of the most influential and heroic women during the Civil War.  This book is written at an adult level, so it would be good for high school students.

Some of the women include Clara Barton, Dorothea Dix, and Mrs. Nellie Taylor.
