Here is an insightful look at the women of the old Southern Confederacy, 1861-1865, told through primary vignettes from a number of sources. The heroism (and sometimes faults) of the women of the Confederacy is spotlighted with descriptions of their trials and testings with an emphasis on their eventual conquest over extreme hardships and difficulties. Although this is a serious book on a serious subject, the reader will find that even in the midst of suffering, humourous things happen. There are some very funny incidents recorded in this book. Carefully documented with a complete Bibliography for further study.
