Southern Families at War by Catherine Clinton
Book DescriptionWhether it was planter patriarchs struggling to maintain authority, or Jewish families coerced by Christian evangelicalism, or wives and mothers left behind to care for slaves and children, the Civil War took a terrible toll. From the bustling sidewalks of Richmond to the parched plains of the Texas frontier, from the rich Alabama black belt to the Tennessee woodlands, no corner of the South went unscathed. Through the prism of the southern family, this volume of twelve original essays provides fresh insights into this watershed in American history.

When Harriet Met Sojourner, Hardback (August 2008)
Two women with similar backgrounds. Both slaves; both fiercely independent. Harriet Tubman, a brave pioneer who led her fellow slaves to freedom, and Sojourner Truth, a strong woman who spoke up for African American rights. This book presents a portrait of these two women.
Battle Scars, Paperback (March 2006)
Addresses how gender scholarship has changed interpretations of the Civil War. This collection examines the study of masculinity and war, expands understandings of sexuality and politics, and deals with issues of health, treason, religion, domesticity, and slavery as they affected Northern and Southern men and women during the Civil War era.
Columbia Guide to American Women in the Nineteenth Century, Paperback (February 2005)

It features alphabetical encyclopedia-like entries.
