Women's Attitudes Towards Secession and the Civil War: Mary Wayne Watson

Thursday, Oct 10, 2013 6:30p to 8:30p
Bellamy Mansion Museum Wilmington, NC

Original, unpublished documents and correspondence from gifted women provide unique and fascinating perspectives of the beginning, middle, and end of the Civil War period in North Carolina. An initially uplifting, idealistic support of the Union as a great experiment in democracy and self-rule ultimately fades into prayers for return of the surviving men as well as hopes for peace, followed by ultimate acceptance of the bitter realities of war on a land and a people crushed in the aftermath.
