They Fought Like Demons. Women Soldiers in the Civil War, Blanton, DeAnne; Cook, Lauren M.
11 Blanton, DeAnne; Cook, Lauren M. They Fought Like Demons. Women Soldiers in the Civil War
LA Louisianna State University Press 2002 0807128066 / 9780807128060 1st Edition Hardcover As New As New Book 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall Photos 
Gorgeous, crisp, unread copy. 177 pp tight and unmarked. Unclipped dj in new mylar is mint. "Albert Cashier" served three years in the Union Army and passed successfully as a man until 1911 when the aging veteran was revealed to be a woman named Jennie Hodgers. Frances Clayton kept fighting even after her husband was gunned down in front of her at the Battle of Murfreesboro. And more than one soldier astonished "his" comrades-in-arms by giving birth in camp. This lively and authoritative book opens a hitherto neglected chapter of Civil War history, telling the stories of hundreds of women who adopted male disguise and fought as soldiers. It explores their reasons for enlisting; their experiences in combat, and the way they were seen by their fellow soldiers and the American public. Impeccably researched and narrated with verve and wit, They Fought Like Demons is a major addition to our understanding of the Civil War era.
