9780471229261: Outrageous Women of Civil War Times

Fascinating true stories of the most amazing women in American history

They were pioneers and trailblazers, spies and ex-slaves, reformers and first ladies. They became America's first women nurses, doctors, preachers, and voters. These Outrageous Women of Civil War Times braved the battlefield, fought for their rights, wrote inspiring works-and became heroines!

Among the outrageous women you'll meet are:

Belle Boyd-a spy for the confederacy who dodged a hail of bullets to deliver key information to General Stonewall Jackson

Susan B. Anthony-the pioneering women's rights crusader who broke the law in order to vote for Ulysses S. Grant for president

Clara Barton-who cared for Civil War soldiers on the battlefield and founded the American Red Cross

Harriet Tubman-the runaway slave who led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad

About the Author:

MARY RODD FURBEE is a writing and journalism instructor at West Virginia University School of Journalism. She is the author of several children’s books, including Outrageous Women of Colonial America and Outrageous Women of the American Frontier, both from Wiley.

From Booklist:

Gr. 3-6. Not all the women fit the profile of this series, which includes Outrageous Women of Colonial America (2001) and Outrageous Women of the American Frontier (2002). Some of their contemporaries might have considered Amelia Bloomer or confederate spy Belle Boyd outrageous, but first ladies Mary Todd Lincoln and Varina Davis, wife of Jefferson Davis, less so. Still, stretching the word "outrageous," the book provides good summaries of the lives and accomplishments of significant women of the period--among them, Louisa May Alcott, Susan B. Anthony, Sojourner Truth, Clara Barton, and Loreta Janeta Velazquez. The many, sometimes lengthy, sidebars introduce other exceptional women and discuss topics such as the Temperance movement, mill girls, and phrenology. Small reproductions of photos, prints, and paintings illustrate the lively collective biography. Carolyn Phelan
