Women of the Confederacy

Women of the Confederacy

Despite the limited opportunities for them at the time, women made a significant impact during the American Civil War. Some chose to serve as nurses, helping wounded soldiers. Others worked secretly as spies or disguised themselves as men and enlisted in the Confederate Army. Enslaved women eagerly awaited their freedom, but didn't know what the future held. Others struggled to keep their farms and plantations going. These women not only survived, but also faced the unknown with courage and strength.
