Some Nifty Ladies
It has been said: If women were in charge...there
would be fewer wars, and they would be short in duration. This
is based on a theory that--unburdened by the primal male ego--women tend
to be more practical in their approach to conflict, more willing and able
to compromise; ergo, they are more apt to reach detente, and in less time.
In my research I have encountered interesting
ladies -- strong, practical, outspoken, loving and caring, witty, jealous,
audacious -- some of whom are listed below. Their brief biographical
data and/or publications are provided for your enjoyment.
Click on the flowers & quills below for
sound bytes from "Gone With The Wind". [These (wav. files)
may load slowly -- please be patient.] To listen to a lively banjo
version of "Dixie", click on the battle flag. I hope you
enjoy your visit!
Duke University's Special Collections Library
has a very nice selection of writings by and about notable Civil War Women
and African-American Women in the South. Click

I'm still working on this section -- can't find my books!
