Ethel Alice Hurn's Wisconsin Women in the War between the States
Hurn, Ethel Alice
Ethel Alice Hurn researched Wisconsin women during the Civil War for her 1910 B.A. thesis at the Univ. of Wisconsin. The thesis was published the following year by the Wisconsin Historical Commission. Hurn describes women's contributions and experiences both at the military front and at home. The book is based on information she obtained in correspondence, reminiscences, pamphlets, newspapers, and interviews with survivors. It is still the standard source on Wisconsin women during the Civil War.
