Women played a crucial role in the Civil War, taking over farms and businesses, serving as nurses for the wounded and even becoming spies for both sides. Elizabeth Van Lew, a prominent member of Richmond, VA society and Mary Elizabeth Bowser , a freed slave working in the Confederate White House, passed Confederate secrets to the Union. Ruth Pangrace and Vernice Jackson star in this dramatic presentation.
