Women in Civil War Combat---as men!

A truly strange and fascinating tidbit that came up in my research.
Women disguising themselves as men to fight in the Civil War.
Petticoats and Pistols

When you think of women and the Civil War, you think of brave nurses, maybe double agents…spies! Or (if you’re a romance novelist especially) you think of brave Southern Belles plantations from maurauding Yankees.
What you don’t think of are women charging into battle. There were women living in those infantry camps, suffered in prisons, dying for their country.
