Honoring Civil War Women for Women's History Month

Posted 3/1/2012 By Laura June Davis

Today marks the first day of Women's History Month. To celebrate, The Front Line will have a month-long series of women's history posts including images, quotes, writings, and biographies. We recommend you check back often.

This 1862 Harper's Weekly drawing honors the "Women of War" and their many contributions to the cause: home tidings, charity, nursing, laundry, sewing, letter writing, and comfort.
