In Women and the American Civil War: North-South Counterpoints, Professors Judith Giesberg and Randall M. Miller have assembled a very strong edited collection of 16 essays designed to integrate women’s and Civil War history and to systematically compare the experiences of women across regional boundaries and throughout the entire Civil War era. The goal of the work is to confront what Giesberg and Miller consider the segregation and racial gendering of many histories of the period, and to broaden and deepen our understanding of the wide array of women’s experiences and their still underappreciated importance in any effort to appreciate the reality of the Civil War in both the North and the South.
