Fun Fact:Living in the South was harder then living in the North

Many women participated in the war by going into the battles as a man or they became nurses.

Women At Home Women's lives changed dramatically. Sicne all the men were out fighting women took over the jobs at home. They would go out to the fields like the men did,(if you did not have slaves), and go work at factories to give suppies to those on the battle fields. Other wise women just worried about there loved ones out on the battle field and did thier normal stuff around the house(clean,cook,etc.).

Women SlavesWomen slaves lives changed to. Many slave owners who went out to war would often bring thier male slaves with them out to battle. this left the women to do all the hard labor that the men would do and the stuff that they did normally.
