Ohio’s political and military importance to the Union victory is widely known, but what about the vital contribution made by the state’s female population? Join us to explore their wartime activities on the home front, focusing largely on the Soldiers Aid Societies and the Sanitary Fairs in Cleveland and Cincinnati.
