Bio and Links
For twenty years I have been researching and writing on women's military history and doing my own family's genealogy as well. I am a pioneer scholar on the women Civil War soldiers (see 2006 Women on the Civil War Battlefront). I have authored: 'Til I Come Marching Home: A Brief History of American Women in World War II; Great Necessities: The Life, Times, and Writings of Anna Ella Carroll, 1815-1894; and South Under a Prairie Sky: The Journal of Nell Churchill, US Army Nurse & Scout, a very factual work of fiction, based on my family in Illinois. I may best contribute to this site by adding biographical information and/or research tips.

Springing to the Call
Wow!! I am just Fascinated with your writings. I did indeed read the many awesome heartwarming stories of these ladies listed and LOVED it!! I am learning new things every time I read your articles.
Now, I knew that women were involved in our wars and the efforts here at home but not to the extent to which you have written. I enjoy learning about history, but I especially enjoy reading of these "unsung heroes" fellow WOMEN!! I am so proud of them all!!

Thanks for the Great Work, Kay!!

Annie Etheridge
Hello Kay,

I have two of the women listed, Mary and Pauline, but there are quite a few Annie Etheridge's that I don't know which one you are referring to. Could you specify?

Thanks for the info!!

RE: Anna Ella Carroll
Thank You so much Kay!! I will indeed check out those websites you gave to me and I look forward to seeing the new movie. I think that I will also check out your book on the life of AEC as I am interested in learning more about her.

Thank You also for the Great Work that you are doing regarding WOMEN in the Military!! We are oftentimes overlooked in our contributions to the military and so I thank you for keeping the Memory of these Great Ladies Alive!!!
