Abstract:
In the last of Gerard's his eight-part series on the Civil War, he writes devastation is synonymous with the Civil War and affected not only beleaguered troops from both sides but a large population left behind; women. With men off fighting the war, women were left behind to cope with everyday life, but this everyday existence differed between dissimilar socio-economic groups. Those who enjoyed a privileged life before conflict continued to live with some degree of comfort and when war threatened too close, these women could pick-up and move away. Middle-class and lower-class women experienced greater degrees of hardship and much sooner into the conflict. Yet no segment of the female population suffered more than African-Americans, abandoned by husbands or abused by Confederate and Union troops alike.

Credited as the first woman to produce aerial shots, Bayard Wootten also produced innovative work in her pictures of blacks, rural areas, and people from lower classes. Reproductions of over 130 of her photographs are contained in Jerry Cotten’s biography Light and Air. More proof that the memory of her contributions has receded, but not vanished, is on display at University of North Carolina’s Wilson Library, Pack Memorial Library, and Western Carolina University’s Penland School of Crafts collection.
