Hi, I'm Maggie MacLean, author of the Civil War Women Blog. I'm an amateur historian based in Southwest Florida, and I love to research and write about women in American history. I've studied the Civil War for decades, and my personal library now has a room of its own. I do alot of my research on the Internet, and I always provide links to my sources at the end of every post.
I began writing the Civil War Women Blog in 2006, after discovering that there was very little comprehensive information on the Internet about the brave and interesting women who lived in the Civil War and Reconstruction Eras, and who contributed in countless ways to the lives we enjoy today. And after 350+ posts, I'm still finding interesting women and events to write about.
