Performing in period costume Trish Chambers tells a story that takes the listener into the world of Civil War Women. A world that became more complex than knitting socks and baking bread. They were left behind to fend for themselves, to manage homes, businesses and plantations. Roles which up until the war, that had been traditionally performed by men. The presentation discusses changes in society, economics, and traditions that would redefine the roles of women forever. Explore the amazing accomplishments of these brave women of the North and South who supported the war effort as nurses, spies, soldiers, government workers, authors, lecturers and fundraisers.
