Wornall/Majors Book Club: Lady Rebels of Civil War Missouri

March 23 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm


Join us for our first book club of 2023 as we read and discuss “Lady Rebels of Civil War Missouri” with award-winning author Larry Wood. You’re welcome to participate in the conversation even if you haven’t read the book – expect many insights and fascinating stories.

Although war was traditionally the purview of men, the realities of America’s Civil War often brought women into the conflict. They served as nurses, sutlers, and washerwomen. Some even disguised themselves as men and joined the fight on the battlefield. In the border state of Missouri, where Southern sympathies ran deep, women sometimes clashed with occupying Union forces because of illegal, covert activities like spying, smuggling, and delivering mail. When caught and arrested, the women were often imprisoned or banished from the state. In at least a couple of cases, they were even sentenced to death.

*Wornall/Majors House Museums is sponsoring this program in partnership with the Missouri Humanities and with support from the Missouri Humanities Trust Fund.
