Women's Homefront and Battlefront Roles
Transcript of Women's Homefront and Battlefront Roles
Homefront Roles What Southern Woman did during the Civil War on the battlefield was considered by many as "improper" for women. Woman did the same thing as the North. They Nursed soldiers back to health, cared for the sick and comforted those about to die. However, unlike the North most of their nurse work was done in their own homes instead of a hospital. The role of Woman was much harder in the South. Battlefront Roles When the war began the Union women organized the ladies' aid society which helped the war effort from home by:
Baking and canning food for the soldiers
Sewed uniforms and knitted socks and gloves
Mended blankets, quilts and pillowcases
Organized door-to-door fundraising programs
