Elizabeth D. Leonard, Author
City of Atlanta Office of Cultural Affairs
Thursday at 6:30 p.m.
Dr. Elizabeth D. Leonard, professor of history at Colby College, presents her book "All the Daring of the Soldier: Women and the American Civil War" at this event and lecture. In her book, Leonard debunks the myth that women, African-American and white, did not contribute directly to the Civil War effort. Her extensive research in archives and memoirs found that like their male counterparts, these women sacrificed family life and risked their lives for the Confederacy and Union alike. Not only were they nurses, but many fought in battle and served as spies. Copies of the book will be available for purchase at this event.
