Average rating:4.9Number of reviews:(149)
In this five-day course, explore courageous women in the Civil War: nurses, spies, and even soldiers. Witness their fierce dedication to defend the Union or Confederacy. Uncover their untold stories, unravel the history of remarkable women.

Class Experience

US Grade 4 - 7
Students will learn that, although women were not allowed to join the Confederate or Union armies during the Civil War, they did more than sit at home worrying about their husbands and sons. Instead, they will learn that this period was when women became nurses, soldiers, spies and how this tragic event helped the women's rights movement.
I have taught numerous classes on the Civil War, as well as oppressed and marginalized people both on Outschool and elsewhere. Whether black or white, Northern or Southern, rich or poor, women confronted daunting obstacles during the Civil War, and I will handle these topics in an age-appropriate manner. If there are any concerns or questions, please contact me, and I will respond as soon as possible.

When talking about a tragic event like the Civil War, some sensitive questions may arise. These questions may come up in class, or they may come up in your home. As with all my classes, I  will answer these questions at an age-appropriate level. However, if they come up in your home and you have any concerns or questions, I am always here to help.
