Civil War-Era Women and Volunteerism

Here’s Professor Judy Giesberg giving a class on women during the Civil War and their volunteer efforts. This is a pretty good class.

The video’s description reads, “Professor Judith Giesberg talked about the ways northern middle-class women volunteered during the Civil War. She focused on Louisa May Alcott’s time as Civil War nurse chronicled in her book, Hospital Sketches.”
