Women Played Significant--if Untold--Roles During U.S. Civil War
This is a compilation of reports by WKYU-FM's Joe Corcoran that is being submitted for Best Series/Documentary in the 2013 Kentucky Associated Press Broadcasters radio awards.
These reports aired March 5, March 12, and March 19, 2012.
Joe's reports tap into the expertise of two Civil War historians in our region who explore how women disguised themselves as men to fight in the war; the impact of women who served as nurses on both sides of the fighting; and the role of women who remained at home and on the farms while the fighting raged on.
We hope you enjoy hearing this audio compilation of Joe's reports. Thank you for your time and consideration!
