Women of the War; Their heroism and Self-Sacrifice - Frank Moore. For the most part, the histories of wars are the histories of men. Women may be given occasional mention-some for inspiring "heroism and knightly deeds," some for causing "strifes innumerable," few for participation. This is a collection of true accounts about the contributions of numerous notable Union women during the Civil War. "Many loyal women along the vexed border, and within the lines of the enemy, exhibited a more than human courage for the Union and its glorious banner, in the face of persecution and danger. In the hospital, and amid the stormy scenes of war, they displayed a heroism as brilliant as that of Grace Darling, surpassed the charity of Florence Nightingale, and repeated the humility and gentle sacrifices recorded of Mary in the sacred Scriptures."
