“The Better Angels: Five Women Who Changed – and Were Changed By – the American Civil War”

Join in as Robert Plumb discusses five remarkable women who made important contributions to the Union cause at various stages before, during, and after the critical years of the American Civil War. The singular actions of Clare Barton, Julia Ward Howe, Sarah Josepha Hale, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Harriet Tubman led to their prominence during the war, and launched them into successful public roles following the conflict. Plumb will cover highlights of the women’s contributions, their legacies, and their defining qualities such as courage, self-assurance, and persistence which led to their successes.

This presentation will be conducted via Zoom. More information about how to attend this virtual presentation is available at MontgomeryHistory.org.
