Six@Six: The Civil War Experience of Kentucky Women

Thursday, March 15, 2018, 6-7:30 p.m.

Kentucky was divided during the American Civil War in politics, sentiment and experience. That much is well documented in movies, museums and monuments. But the story is typically told as a story about men. For many Kentucky women, war meant both a physical displacement from their homes and the loss of friendships and close family relationships. The varied experiences of Union and Confederate sympathizers, as well as African-American women, reveal the courageous discipline and strength of women in the 19th Century to maintain family life and human compassion in a time of war.
