Through a series of narratives and poems, poet/historian Lisa Samia will tell the stories of a number of the nameless and faceless women of the Civil War. They need not to have been on the front line to have contributed or to have suffered. This selected group of women and their forebearance truly represent the American experience before, during and after the War of the Rebellion. The lithograph on the book cover is a relative of the author, Elvira Finch Moore.
