inductees Grace Lee Boggs, Nellie Cuellar, Waunetta Dominic, Rosa Slade Gragg,
Viola Liuzzo, and Rosa Parks-- all of whom worked towards improvements in civil
rights. They came from different backgrounds and acted in different ways-- some
in their own communities, some on the national level-- and their stories serve
as inspiration for the next generation of civil rights leaders.

Not Just a Man's War:
Michigan Women and the
In celebration of the Civil War
sesquicentennial come discover what the War meant for the women of the state.
Life in Michigan changed when men left to fight in the Civil War. In addition to
their regular duties, the women who remained at home assumed responsibilities
previously held by men while sending supplies to support soldiers far from home.
Other Michigan women moved to the frontline, serving in hospitals and -- for
some bold women--even on battlefields.
When Lincoln declared "Thank God for Michigan!" upon the arrival
of the first regiment from a western state, he could not have anticipated all of
the sacrifices and changes the women of Michigan would face.
