    Some of these women I had never even heard of. It almost reminded me of an assignment that we completed in Dr. Finley’s class that made us aware of children in society that made a difference, but we may have never heard of them. My favorite was the young woman, Angelina Grimke, who left a predominantly wealthy family to stand up for slaves. Originally influenced because of a beating of a young black boy, by the schoolmistress, Angelina decided to leave everything she was comfortable with and b [...]

    The illustrations and photographs greatly aide the text, but many of today's students will probably need help understanding why they are in black and white. Cleverly starts and ends with the same woman, Angelina Grimke,as a child before the war and elderly after, makes an interesting bookends for the other content. Subheadings would help students break the heavy into into chunks, but perhaps these chapters would help students with "close" reading. Narrative descriptions and quotes from letters a [...]

    This book is very well written and extremely informative. It will be a nice addition to the US history curriculum. While there are many facts and people that are explained in the book, they are also a great deal of interesting facts that I had never been made aware of before this book. (And that's saying a lot since I have taught US history for nearly 10 years. Middle School appropriate

    Fascinating topic! Subheadings would have been useful to break the text into smaller bites. I really enjoyed each chapter though, especially the chapter on Civil War nurses. Why hasn't Hollywood told Harriet Tubman's life story? She rocks!! This is one of those books that makes me want to research this topic and these women further.

    I read it in one "sitting" (well, I was in bed reading, so I should say "lying" 8-) ). I enjoyed learning so much about these courageous, cunning and amazing women during Civil War which didn't mentioned in our history books or anywhere else.

    An easy read that can be finished in a day. I enjoyed reading this and appreciated the format used in writing it. I liked the examples given to show what women did in those days. A worthwhile read!
