Women of the Civil War

Bridget Boal

Sojourner TruthSojourner Truth was a run-away slave,who used her loud voice as a weapon against slavery. She felt that God gave her a mission, so she changed her name from Isabella Baumfree to fit her new way of life. She devoted the rest of her life to preaching the truth about slavery. Sojourner was definately an imporatant part of changing people's beliefs during the Civil War.

Harriet Beecher StoweStowe wrote a book called Uncle Tom's Cabin in 1852 that forced people to look at how terrible slavery really was. Most believed that the book is what started the war. Abraham Lincoln even said, "So you are the little lady who wrote the book that started this great war." The book was about a slave named Uncle Tom who is suffering at the hands of his cruel master, Simon Legree. Barton showed everyone that slavery was a problem that needed a better soloution.

Harriet TubmanDifferently than Harriet Beecher Stowe and Sojourner Truth, Tubman took action. Over the years as a slave, Tubman was mistreated, but also suffered injuries from trying to save other slaves from being beaten. She successfully escaped, and found work in Philadelphia, PA. Harriet's freedom wasnt enough for herself, so she became a conductor on the Underground Railroad.Tubman led about 300 slaves to freedom. Harriet Tubman was important to the Civil War because she risked her own freedom for the other slaves in hope of it.

Clara BartonBarton acted as a nurse on the battlefieldby bringing supplies, and helping wounded men. Showing no fear, Barton comforted wounded/ and or diseased men, cooked for them, and brought them water. In 1862, Barton helped the soldiers who were in some of the worst battles. Barton also served as the first female clerk in the U.S. Patent Office. Even today, Clara Barton still inspires people to help those who need it by being the founder of the American Red Cross.
