Civil War Women II: Stories by and about Womenby Martin H. Greenberg (Editor), Catherine Clinton (Introduction), Charles Waugh (Editor)
Wartime has always redefined gender roles, and few conflicts have demanded more of some than the Civil War. In this sequel to our 1988 release, Civil War Women, Louisa May Alcott, Edith Wharton, Elsie Singmaster, and five other females writers portray women on both sides of the battlefield, playing for high stakes with the cards they are dealt. Whether they are smuggling provisions to husbands in nearby regiments, shouldering arms, harboring injured runaway soldiers, or confronting the cowardice of men they thought they knew the women here discover reserves of grit and will that transform their lives forever.
