The outbreak of the Civil War brought women into the forefront of society, both as nurses and representatives of their absent husbands at home. Furthermore, abolition brought all African-American women into free society. Strength in Numbers explores the effects of war on women of all ethnicities, as well as the growth of suffrage and women''s involvement in the exploration of the West.
