Abstract

Time and place, family circumstances and personal relationships all shaped southern women's understanding of their world. The impact of these individual circumstances extends into Civil War historiography, muting over-generalizations. But as varied as women's lived experiences were, scholars have revealed the importance of gender constructions on women across mid-nineteenth-century America.
