Gender And The Sectional Conflict (The Steven And Janice Brose Lectures In The Civil War Era)
In an insightful exploration of gender relations during the Civil War, Nina Silber compares broad ideological constructions of masculinity and femininity among Northerners and Southerners.

“The American Civil War can be illuminated from many perspectives. Although most studies of the war focus upon political or military issues, or upon slavery, a growing number of scholars have been examining the Civil War from the standpoint of gender...”
t similarities, says Silber, differing gender ideologies shaped the way each side viewed, participated in, and remembered the war.Silber finds that rhetoric on both sides connected soldiers' reasons for fighting to the women left at home. Consequently, although in different ways, women on both sides took up new roles to advance the wartime agenda. At the same time, both Northern and Southern women were accused of waning patriotism as the war dragged on, but their responses to such charges differed. Finally, noting that our postwar memories are often dominated by images of Southern belles, Silber considers why Northern women, despite their heroic contributions to the Union cause, have faded from Civil War memory.Silber's investigation offers a new understanding of how Unionists and Confederates perceived their reasons for fighting, of the new attitudes and experiences that women--black and white--on both sides took up, and of the very different ways that Northern and Southern women were remembered after the war ended.
