By: Deanne Blanton and Lauren M. Cook
Women Soldiers in the Civil War
They Fought Like Demons is a lively and authoritative book that opens a hitherto neglected chapter of Civil War History, telling the stories of hundreds of women who adopted male disguise and fought as men. It explores their reasons for enlisting, their experiences in combat, and the way they were seen by their fellow soldiers and the American public. Impeccably researched and narrated with verve and wit, They Fought Like Demons is a major addition to our understanding of the Civil War era.
