Linda Zach Unsung Women of the Civil War Lecture iCal

Sunday, September 15 2013 2:00 PM - 3:30 PM

Please join us at the Willard Chapel on Sunday, September 15 at 2pm as the Community Preservation Committee welcomes back Linda Zach, a Civil War lecturer, reenactor and longtime emergency room nurse. Ms. Zach’s current lecture focuses on wartime contributions by women on the battlefield, at military encampments and on the national political stage.

Harriet Tubman will be featured during this lecture. Not only did Tubman escape slavery herself, only to return and help many others find freedom, she also risked her life as a spy for the Union army. Other distinguished women demonstrated strength, courage and resolve outside traditional realms. Anna Elizabeth Dickinson was a passionate abolitionist and lecturer for the Republican circuit. Septima Collis accompanied her husband throughout the war, recording her experiences as the sister of a Confederate soldier and the wife of a Union officer. Anna Ella Carols of Maryland encouraged President Lincoln with national policy and planning, including military strategy for the war on the western front.

These women, along with nurses and nuns, cooks and washerwomen, and women who disguised themselves as men in order to serve as soldiers, all made their mark toward bringing the war to a conclusion. Don’t miss this chance to hear their stories.

This event is free and open to the public
