    1 thought on “Amazing Women of the Civil War: Fascinating True Stories of Women Who Made a Difference

    1. After reading "They Fought Like Demons", about women posing as men to become soldiers during the Civil War, this book seemed very lightweight, based on hearsay and not fact. Kind of like reading "The National Enquirer" as compared to "The New York Times". See the chapter on the Missing Women of Roswell! There is also an apparent bias in this book toward the Confederacy. In the first chapter, the author describes Union soldier Sarah Emma Edmonds' memoirs as "clearly the product of a vivid imagina [...]

    2. The title is exactAmazing! The book contains 30 short chapters of some incredible women who risked so much to fight for something in which they believed. Both sides of the war were covered, Union & Confederate in a way that focused on these women's beliefs and not the politics of the opposing governments. I couldn't help but wonder if I could have been as brave as they were and risk everything to maintain my way of life. Truly amazing stories about some incredible women.

    3. This was not a page turner but the stories of some of the women were interesting. The book outlined more than 30 different women who left a legacy after the civil war. Some of the women in the book surprised me. I didn't know that Louisa May Alcott was a nurse during the Civil war and worked herself nearly to death. Her father picked her up and took her back home to recover and she wrote Little Women while she was still recovering. It was interesting to read about Mary Custis Lee, wife of Robert [...]

    4. Fascinating profiles of many women involved in the Civil War. Some dressed as men to be soldiers. Others were spies, wives, nurses, doctors. Others were strategists, poets, writers, authors, princesses. From both sides of the conflict, these women held their own. I wish I had a book to study like this while at a women's college in classes of women's studies, American History and studies of the South. We tend to think of women's rights beginning with the suffrage movement. Not so. It was alive an [...]

    5. Garrison has written snapshot portraits of women who inserted themselves into the story of the American Civil War. These accounts are short on scholarship (perhaps necessarily) and highly dependent on supposition, hearsay, gossip, and myth making, as well as credible documentary evidence. These stories are perhaps a place to start looking at the many roles some women played, or may have played, as soldiers, spies, nurses, and journalists on both sides of the conflict.

    6. Very interesting information on the contributions and roles played by women during the Civil War. Some women were familiar to me but there were many accounts of women I had never heard about before. Unfortunately, that is generally true for women and history. Most of the contributions and parts played by women tend to be left out or glossed over by our history books.

    7. Each chapter was on a specific woman. Duties they performed included spies, soldiers, journalists, Angels of Mercy, and wives. Some of them are Wives of Gen Lee and Gen Grant, Eliza Anderson, Princess Agnes, Lucy Hayes, Mary Walker, Sarah Edmonds, Harriet Tubman, Elizabeth Van Lew, Major Parline Cushman, Emma Sampson, Nancy Hart, Clara barton, Harriet Beecher Stowe

    8. I really appreciated reading this book. I can identify with a lot of these women (at least I hope to!). It's amazing what they accomplished considering what they were up against. This book is really well organized, and it's a quick read. I recommend it to anyone who typically has a low tolerance for reading history books.

    9. We tend to think of the Civil War only in terms of the men fighting it. Yet women were a very important part of this great war. I keep this book with other references I have, and I heartily recommend this book to all readers.

    10. Although the writing in the book was a bit simple, I enjoyed learning about so many women I knew little or nothing about.

    11. Very interesting. Outlines the lives of many prominent women during the Civil War era. A lot of whom are unknown or not well known unfortunately.
