Women at War, I
Lecture no. 32 from the course: The American Civil War
Taught by Professor Gary W. Gallagher | 30 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses

Wartime urgencies provided increased opportunities for middle-class women to enter the public sphere as nurses, clerks, or agents of benevolent organizations. The experiences of poor white women and black women—whether as farmwives, widows, or factory workers—are less well understood.
