Women Of The Civil War ‘How They Hid In The Military Ranks’

‘The Fearless and Proud podcast’ series looks at acts of bravery and strength by women. March is ‘Women’s History Month’ and in this first season we discuss women who played important roles in the ‘Civil War’ as soldiers, spies and nurses.

As the war approached their kitchen windows or as their own loved ones went off to fight, women decided to don a uniform or disguise and join the struggle in ways not done before. We will discuss how these women maintained their disguise and why the era’s social morays helped their deception on both sides from clothing to the way they handled themselves among the military ranks. These brave women were always on the verge of being found out and we will learn what happens when their female identities were discovered.
