A Separate Battle

A Separate Battle

by Ina Chang
Whether privileged ladies or former slaves, women in the North and South worked as nurses, spies, and volunteers in aid societies; they even fought battles posing as male soldiers. These indomitable women broke taboos, developed strategies to help feed and clothe the soldiers, cared for the wounded, and took over dangerous jobs on the home front. The impact their presence made will engross and enlighten the reader.
