Women's Aid Societies

During the Civil War, women helped the war effort in many ways, such as women's aid societies. These important organizations were formed to make and collect food, bedding, clothing, and other supplies for troops, and they provided help to soldiers in hospitals. Societies also held fundraising dinners and festivals, in part to assist the needy families of soldiers.
