Joining the Fight: Women and American Civil War Music
  • Aisha Conner-Gaten, Loyola Marymount University
This website was a project completed for LIS584 during my MS program.

Website description: Women played a crucial role in the success of  both Southern and North war campaigns,  impacting not only home life and medicine, but the music composed during this period. As popular subjects, lyricists and composers, women altered the musical landscape and presented new sounds on the battlefields, plantations, and in the homes of American citizens embittered by the only civil war in U.S. history. Explore our site and learn more about the Civil War and how women changed its music forever!
