Unsung Heroines: The Role of Women in the American Civil War
March 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
Join the Mercer County Library System for Unsung Heroines: The Role of Women in the American Civil War on Thursday, March 4, 7:00 PM – 8:00 PM
This program provides a comprehensive, one hour review of the heroic and awesome accomplishments made by women, both North and South. It covers their role as administrators, journalists, nurses, spies and combatants in an age when women were expected to stay home. These remarkable women defied the culture of their time, surpassed all expectations and provided enormous support to the war effort. Sadly, they never received proper historical notice. This program reveals the enormity of their contributions and sacrifices. Presented by Civil War expert Martin Mosho, who has studied the Civil War for over 50 years and toured many of the most famous battlefields. He is a member of a prominent Civil War society and a retired instructor of Mercer County Community College. Sponsored by the Friends of the West Windsor Library.
