Lecture :: Women in the Civil War
Thursday March 14, 2013 from 7:30 - 9 pm
Jackson Homestead and Museum, 527 Washington St, Newton, MA
A generation of women found their social roles drastically changed during the Civil War. They left farms and towns and became spies, soldiers, nurses, administrators, factory workers, diplomats, regimental cooks and even government-sponsored prostitutes.
One woman won the Congressional Medal of Honor. It was a time when the country underwent great change, and women were a major part of that change. Join Charles Kindregan for this lecture celebrating both Women’s History Month and the 150th anniversary of the American Civil War.
