Course detail: OSH010 - Women and the Civil War: The Hidden History
Just as American women were starting to question their roles in society, civil war erupted and changed everything. This course introduces you to fascinating stories you've never heard--the women who fought as men, the ladies pressed into jobs in government and factories, and the slave women who ran to freedom and found work with the Union Army. Leaders of the new women's rights movement thought America was changing before their eyes. But their dreams would die after the war, in a raucous 1867 election in Kansas.
