This presentation addresses the women who chose to become soldiers and spies during the Civil War. See how their ingenuity and the society’s perception of women allowed them to perform successfully in both these endeavors. Learn why they selected the path they did, and understand how they were able to function effectively as soldiers and influence history as spies. Discover how their will to survive the war and to create a future for themselves and their families drove them from their traditional roles and into a new world for women. Performed in period costume.
