Southern Families at War by Catherine Clinton

Book Description

Whether 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.

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 by Catherine Clinton 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.

Offers students of women's history and nineteenth-century American culture with a source of information and interpretation. This book focuses on areas in which scholars have identified changes (such as suffrage and reform), and innovative explorations (for example, work on female sexuality). It features alphabetical encyclopedia-like entries.

Harriet Tubman by Catherine Clinton Harriet Tubman, Paperback (January 2005)

This is a long-overdue historical work on one of the most important figures in American history, written by an acclaimed historian of the antebellum era. Harriet Tubman was the first and only woman, fugitive slave, and black to work as a conductor on the Underground Railroad.
