Overview

1867. From the Introduction: The histories of wars are records of the achievements of men, for the most part: the chroniclers have had to record that women, by their intrigues or their fatal gift of beauty, have been the cause of strifes innumerable; and it is confessed that they have inspired heroism and knightly deeds, but they have had small share in the actual conflicts. It has been their portion to suffer in silence at home, and to mourn the dead. For them it has been to hear of sufferings which they could not alleviate, to grieve or rejoice over results to which they had contributed only sympathy and prayers. It has been different in our Conflict for the Union. Includes stories about: Mrs. Fanny Ricketts; Mrs. Mary A. Brady; Kady Brownell; Mrs. P.B. Hurd; Margaret E.
