Not Just a Man's War:
Michigan Women and the Civil War
In celebration of the 150th
anniversary of the Civil War, discover the unique contributions made by Michigan
women. Michigan women were on the frontline during the Civil War serving as as
nurses in hospitals and on the battlefield. Some bold women even disguised
themselves as men to serve in battle. And then there is the story of the home
front, which did not remain static during the four long years of war. Women took
on new roles and responsibilities left behind by men: they ran businesses,
tended farms, raised families, and sent their support in the form of supplies,
letters, and money-- often not knowing the condition of their soldier husband,
father, sweetheart, brother, or son.
The Michigan Women's Hall
The Hall of Fame features 268
historical and contemporary women of Michigan who have been inducted since 1983.
Displays include artifacts highlighting individuals from the Michigan Women's
Hall of Fame.
