One hundred b&w and color illustrations along with six essays, and excerpts from diaries and letters examine how women white and black, rich and poor, free and slave contributed to the confederate war effort, how they were affected by it, and how their role has been regarded by history. The authors explore the female refugee experience, female slave contrabandists, and the war's effect on women's suffrage movements. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
