"As the men went off to war, women tended the farms and businesses back home. They also voluntered as nurses at army camps and hospitals. Plantations in the South depended on the labor of their slaves to keep their businesses going. Union blockades created shortages of food and other essentials throughout the Confederacy. Although less directly affected at home, the Northern states sent thousands of men to serve. By the end of the war, every American had been touched in some way." - back cover.
