In this video from The Good Stuff, in association with PBS Learning Media, hosts Craig Benzine and Matt Weber help viewers understand the lasting impact women had on the Civil War. Benzine and Weber talk with Jane E. Schultz, Professor of English, American Studies and Medical Humanities at IUPUI, for insight and to give viewers more information about the women who played a part. We explore such figures as Elizabeth Cady Stanton, Susan B. Anthony, Clara Barton, Dorothea Dix and Jennie Hodgers. We also learn about women working as nurses, helping with relief efforts and even posing as soldiers to help fight in the war.
