Lee?  Sure, they were soldiers in the Civil War.  But what about the names Jennie Hodges?  Or Elizabeth Compton?  Believe it or not, they were also soldier during the Civil War.  It was very unusual for women to be soldiers so they often had to disguise themselves as men in order to fight.  Women also served as nurses during the war and as spies.  Find out about these amazing women in Daring Women of the Civil War.
