This internet activity challenges the learners to find out the real story behind some of the brave women who contributed to their cause in the American Civil War (1861-1865). In their search, students quarry websites to discover information that is as authoritative as possible. This may challenge them to examine more than one perspective, but it also shows them how sometimes one must occasionally work with limited information. Students see that the big story is made up of thousands of personal stories, and they might even dispel a few myths about women as warriors. There is an answer key for the suggested women to serve as a guideline for any others the student may wish to explore.
