The definitive military history of the Civil War, used to teach the history of the art of war to West Point cadets.
I’ve always been a huge fan of Cokie Roberts—I loved Founding Mothers and Ladies of Liberty—and she delivers again with Capital Dames. In this book she focuses on the women of Washington during the tumultuous Civil War era. It’s a powerful and inspiring testament to the women whose courage and conviction revolutionized our country. I was fascinated by stories of Clara Barton, Dorothea Dix, and other remarkable women—some well known, some less so—and I was deeply touched by the author’s moving portrayal of the struggle and tragedy of the Civil War. I can’t recommend Capital Dames highly enough.
