From slave women to abolitionists, fund raisers, spies, and even soldiers, courageous women such as Angelina Grimke, Sojourner Truth, Harriet Tubman, and Clara Barton played fascinating—and vital—roles in the Civil War. Drawing on diaries and letters and illustrated with vintage photographs. A Separate Battle reveals how women influenced the course of the Civil War—and transformed their own lives.

“I could work as much and eat as much as a man—when I could get it—and bear the lash as well. . . . And aren’t I a woman?”—Sojourner Truth
