We can think of no better way to acquaint our readers with the Civil War and the women of Missouri than to use a quote from one of stories to be found herein of the true grit displayed by these women thru four long years.

"Much has been written of the valor and heroism and the many triumphant victories achieved by our soldiers on the field of battle, and I would not pluck one laurel from their brow, but, there is another about whom little has been written who was equally patriotic and loyal to the cause...the wife, the mother, the sweetheart all bid adieu to their loved ones, cheering them on with words of love and encouragement, then, turning to their sad and lonely homes, took up the work which had been the task of the stronger.

They shouldered the burdens, met the responsibilities, endured the privations, while hoping and praying for those loved ones at the battle front.

These women, many of whom had been reared in wealth and luxury, soon learned to card, spin, and weave, knit, sew, and cook and do all kinds of housework. Many of them went to the fields and labored there to help support those dependent upon them.

Words are inadequate to describe or express the trials, hardships and tribulations, these women endured, always true and loyal.
