Women Soldiers in the American Civil War

January 6@2:00 pm - 3:00 pm

Join us on January 6th at 2:00 PM at the National Museum of Civil War Medicine as Civil War scholars Dr. Audrey Scanlan-Teller and Tracey McIntire explore an unusual and courageous group of soldiers seldom discussed in the annals of Civil War history. Although women were forbidden by social custom and army regulations to enter military service in the Union and Confederate armies, a surprising number of women disguised themselves as young men and “went for a soldier.” Come learn about the best documented of these woman combatants.
