    Strong Women Fight a Losing Battle

    Very good book dealing with southern women who endured and supported the Civil War. As their male counterparts marched off to fight the Yankees, these women remained behind to run the plantations, tend the harvests and keep everyday life going. They were forced to live within very strict social rules which was a big contributing factor to the South losing the war. As northern women were allowed to work outside the home, southern women remained inside their homes, clinging staunchly to old world values. Ms. Clinton sites many examples of women fighting hunger, Yankees, becoming refugees, losing loved ones and the difficult, almost impossible transition to becoming emancipated. These tales are taken directly from the diaries of many southern belles. The author follows the war chronologically, from life before the war to eventual surrender and how life dramatically changes afterwards. She meticulously guides the reader into the 20th century to demonstrate how southerners still maintain their rebel pride today despite losing the Civil War. This is a very in-depth historical read originating from the woman's point of view which was rarely seen. For readers who love Gone with the Wind, this book provides an excellent follow-up and is definately worthwhile.
