This is an amazing coincidence! Today I just bought the paperback They Fought Like Demons: Women Soldiers in the Civil War because I had a Barnes and Noble gift certificate from last Christmas I found in the depths of my purse.

I started the book right away and have found it fascinating. Just one example, I didn't know there were any women sailors in the war! That blows me away. I also didn't know that no diary survives from any of the women who fought as soldiers or sailors in the war. Lastly it blows me away that some of these women were in the cavalry. I wonder if any were in artillery units.

It will be fun to see what you think of this book.
