Annual Conference of The Society for Women and the Civil War
Online Via Zoom
(Saturday-Sunday, July 24-25)

Like many organizations, the Society for Women and the Civil War has found it prudent to postpone our previously announced in-person annual conference until 2022. However, we will host a virtual conference, “Resilient Women of the Civil War,” on July 24-25, 2021.

Presentation Schedule:
Saturday, July 24, 1:00 – 4:00 pm
• Jonathan A. Noyalas will speak about Rebecca McPherson Wright, the Union spy who was critical to the success of Sheridan’s 1864 Shenandoah Valley Campaign
• Sarah Bierle will give us a civilian-focused tour of New Market Battlefield in the Shenandoah Valley.
Sunday, July 25, 1:00 – 4:00 pm
• Megan Hildebrand reviews the relationships between Roman Catholic nuns serving as nurses and their Protestant soldier patients.
• Steve Magnusen discusses the Cutler, Dawes, and Gates women of Marietta, Ohio.

Registration fee: $25. Non-members are welcome. Zoom log-in information plus an electronic “conference notebook” will be emailed to participants in advance of the event.
