The Civil War claimed more American lives than the Revolutionary War, World Wars I and II, the War of 1812, and the Vietnam War combined. It involved many different groups of citizens, including women, who dressed as men in order to fight, and Native Americans, some of whom fought their own civil wars at the same time. Their unique perspectives all played a role in shaping a nation struggling to define itself.About the Author:
Lisa Tendrich Frank, PhD, is an independent scholar living in Tallahassee, FL.
