The first reference work to draw together the stories and studies of women in the American Civil War, this annotated bibliography offers access to the literature that documents the history of women who experienced the war, changed it, and were changed by it. Offering nearly 800 entries, it lists both primary and secondary sources, classic and current works, and items in print and available on the Internet. Drawing together over one hundred years of writings, Women in the American Civil War: An Annotated Bibliography is an invaluable resource for readers and researchers interested in this neglected topic. During the American Civil War women played a highly significant role, yet modern writers often overlook their experiences and contributions. Women in the American Civil War: An Annotated Bibliography is the first reference work to focus exclusively on women in the war. Sections list sources on such diverse topics as women as nurses and medical relief workers, women's changing economic roles, their lives as refugees, as spies and scouts, or in military camps. It also looks at the literature on the miscellaneous topics of women in public, wives of politicians and military commanders, family life, and women on the wrong side of the law.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"McDevitt's impressive scholarly work brings together writings, often difficult to locate in the massive Civil War literature, by and about women who contributed to the war effort in diverse ways. Ten topical chapters are arranged by women's participation as soldiers, scouts, or relief agents and by their less familiar roles in public life, as military or political wives, or on the wrong side of the law....no comparable work covers the breadth of women's participation in the Civil War. This bibliography will be the standard for years to come. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and higher."-Choice
"This is an excellent, comprehensive and well-conceived volume ... it would be a useful guide for any Civil War historian to have to hand."-History
"McDevitt's reference is extensive and exhaustive"-Civil War Book Review

"This book is, in a word, excellent....McDevitt's exhaustive research produced nearly eight hundred published sources (both traditional and Internet-based), all of which appear in her bibliography accompanied by thoughtful and critical annotation....McDevitt truly leaves no subject unexamined and no stone unturned.
