Women Who Dare is a book written about both the women of the north and south in the Civil War and whose courage and daring brought them into the fray, whether by donning men's clothes and fighting as soldiers, becoming spies, working as nurses in the bloody battlefields, or becoming propagandists for the Cause. Acting out of patriotism, personal commitment, or simple unwillingness to be left behind, these women accepted the dangers and privations of war and earned their place in history.
