Published as one of 11 books for young adults in the series The Young Oxford History of Women in the United States, this volume examines the lives of women in the aftermath of the Civil War, when many former homemakers were forced by circumstances to become their families’ sole providers and when many women became involved with social issues that ranged from the prevention of domestic violence to woman suffrage.
