Here’s Professor Margaret Creighton of Bates College talking about women and African Americans at Gettysburg. This is a pretty good presentation based on her 2005 book, The Colors of Courage. This was another presentation from this past summer’s symposium at Pamplin Park that featured all women historians.
The video’s description reads, “Author Margaret Creighton talked about women and African Americans at Battle of Gettysburg and how their contributions are often overlooked in the memorial landscape. She described women tending wounded soldiers and civilians helping on the Underground Railroad. She also talked about the impact of the battle and how it continued to affect residents long after the armies had left. Pamplin Historical Park in Virginia hosted this event.”
