Quilts, Plows, And Munitions : The Northern Homefront Supports Civil War Troops Online
With the first salvo of cannon fire at Fort Sumter in April, 1861, northern civilians sought to help the nation and the war effort. This support included creating national soldiers’ aid societies. Additional support came from the need for women to do men’s work when fathers, sons, and brothers went off to war.
During this talk, we will discuss how northern women helped to keep the country running and support the war effort during the Civil War.
Susan Carver has been a member of the 125th New York Regimental Association, a civil war reenacting group, since 2006. Susan’s interests in the US Civil War era include the roles of women during the war and making 1860s apparel and food.
