Overview

"This collection of essays is one of those rare books that provides unique insights into women's roles in the Civil War." -- Civil War News

"Any scholar or general reader who enjoys women's history or the Civil War will find this collection enlightening." -- Civil War Book Review

In Occupied Women, twelve distinguished historians consider how women's reactions to occupation affected both the strategies of military leaders and ultimately even the outcome of the Civil War. Historians have traditionally depicted Confederate women as helpless in the face of occupying armies, but these essays demonstrate that women came together to form a strong, localized resistance to military invasion. This pioneering collection uses the female perspective to reconfigure sources of conflict and the chronology of the American Civil War.
