History Break: Women of the Civil War

April 17 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

 Women of the Civil War – Presented by Vickie Wendel 

The War Between the States may have been fought by great armies of men, but women filled many vital roles in society and even in the military. Women such as Clara Barton and Dorothea Dix immediately come to mind, but what about Minnesota’s women? This program highlights the incredible stories of Minnesota women who protected their homes, supported their soldiers,  served the army  in many different ways, and kept the home fires burning throughout the four years of the Civil War. Some were dedicated enough to continue working for veterans even after the war. Their stories long overlooked and forgotten, bring a new perspective to the  history of America’s most bloody war.
