Civil War Heroines: Wilmington Soldiers' Aid Society: Mrs. Alfred Martin

Record #:
Thousands of women on the home front during the Civil War rendered valuable services to the soldiers who were away at the front. Many of the men were their husbands, fathers, brothers, sons, and neighbors. The Wilmington Soldiers' Aid Society organized in August 1861 to provide assistance to the soldiers. Hertzler describes the society, which worked long hours to provide provisions, money, and support. The work of Mrs. Alfred Martin is discussed.
