History Sandwiched In: 'Wisconsin Women in the War Between the States'
Wisconsin Historical Museum, 30 N. Carroll St., Madison, WI
Though the contributions of women during the Civil War were many, documentation of their efforts was scattered at best. Join historian John Zimm as he reminds us of the stories Ethel Alice Hurn preserved through findings in collections of letters, newspaper files and interviews. 'Wisconsin Women in War Between the States' documents an important turning point in the changing role of women in American society.
