Confederate Girlhoods: A Women's History of Early Springfield, Missouri Paperback – November 1, 2010
From the Inside Flap
~From the Foreword by Roseann Bentley, Associate Commissioner District 2, Greene County, Missouri
"Confederate Girlhoods makes an important contribution to the history of Springfield and the state of Missouri, as well as to gender history and the history of the American Civil War. The writings of the Campbell-McCammon family are both entertaining and revealing, and they have been expertly edited for this volume. This is a pleasure to read."
~William Garrett Piston, co-author of Portraits of Conflict: A Photographic History of Missouri in the Civil War
