About the Editor
[The Civil War] period is understudied in women’s suffrage history, being explained away as the time women suspended their women’s rights work to further the war effort – but only if it was fought to end slavery. This manuscript gives a face to that analysis, it fleshes it out and personalizes it. It is as though we are sitting beside Matilda Joslyn Gage as she reads the newspapers, pointing out and reading aloud to us the articles that she sees as most important.
