Introduction by Lance J. Herdegen, Chair, Wisconsin Civil War Sesquicentennial Commission

Though the contributions of women during the war were many, documentation of their efforts was scattered at best. Women of the Civil War era could not vote, hold bank accounts, or take a direct role in business. Yet Ethel Alice Hurn persevered, finding a wealth of stories in collections of letters, newspaper files, interviews, and the brief reports and pamphlets of soldier fairs and soldiers's aid societies. Wisconsin Women in the War between the States documents an important turning point in the changing role of women in American society.

First published in May 1911, this facsimile edition--with foreword by celebrated Civil War historian Lance J.Herdegen--recaptures the landmark documentation of the overlooked and almost forgotten role Northern women played in 1861-1865.
