Female Heroines of the Civil War



This video captures a glimpse of women who fought in the Civil War. Though at the time, only men could enlist, women disguised themselves, dressed as men to serve side-by-side with fellow soldiers. Many other women served as spies, nurses or maintained the home-front while their brothers, husbands, and fathers dedicated their lives to battle and other companies of war.
