War is not pleasent and neither are some of the
authentic photos with which I have illustrated
these stories. If such reality upsets or offends you,
stop now, and go visit the other subjects to be
found at this site. Thank you.


           As a general rule, the history of war is the history of men, but in
the story of the American Civil War, it is also HERstory. The individual
women featured on these pages contributed as much as any man, and in some
instances, more than most of the men on the battlefields. These are they who
followed their husbands and brothers to the field of battle and to prisons; who
went down into the very edge of the fight to rescue the wounded and comfort the
dying; who labored in field and city hospitals; who went behind enemy lines on
dangerous secret missions and who performed a myriad of other valuable and
incredible tasks under circumstances most of us now cannot even imagine.
