Fascinating true stories of the most amazing women in American history

They were pioneers and trailblazers, spies and ex-slaves, reformers and first ladies. They became America's first women nurses, doctors, preachers, and voters. These Outrageous Women of Civil War Times braved the battlefield, fought for their rights, wrote inspiring works-and became heroines

Among the outrageous women you'll meet are:

Belle Boyd-a spy for the confederacy who dodged a hail of bullets to deliver key information to General Stonewall Jackson

Susan B. Anthony-the pioneering women's rights crusader who broke the law in order to vote for Ulysses S. Grant for president

Clara Barton-who cared for Civil War soldiers on the battlefield and founded the American Red Cross

Harriet Tubman-the runaway slave who led hundreds to freedom on the Underground Railroad.
