The American Civil War has been called the first modern war. Railroads, the telegraph, steamships, and mass-produced weapons were extensively employed. The practice of total war, developed by Sherman in Georgia, and of trench warfare around Petersburg foreshadowed World War I in Europe. The chronology of the war is a well-told tale. Less well known are the strikingly varied changes in America resulting from the war, including expanded roles for women as factory workers, teachers, nurses, and as some of the war’s most successful spies.
