"Well researched and thoroughly grounded in surviving primary sources, these essays reveal that Florida and Georgia women's experiences in the century following the Civil War were similar to many of their counterparts in other southern states who have received much more attention from historians."
"Offer(s) rich examples of the variety of women's contributions that should inform studies of the Guilded Age and Progressive-era South and encourage future study of Florida's vibrant women's history."
--Florida Historical Quarterly
"A valuable reference that will enable readers to understand more fully the complexity and richness of the lives of southern women following the Civil War and into the twentieth century. A praiseworthy effort that adds to our knowledge of southern women."
