This collection addresses how gender scholarship has changed interpretations of the Civil War. The contributors examine the study of masculinity and war, expand understandings of sexuality and politics, and deal with issues of health, treason, religion, domesticity, and slavery as they affected Northern and Southern men and women during the Civil War era.
