Black Southern Women’s Contributions To the South During Civil War

black_women_south_contribution

Black women, many whom were slaves also contributed to the South. Some of them provided nursing care to the injured Confederate & Union wounded in battle. This representation was on the public display at that Mansfield War museum, in Mansfield, LA (Desoto Parish).   Though I am pleased that at least this museum was thoughtful enough to prominently feature a black female’s contribution as shown in above photo; but throughout all my travels in the south,  I have yet to find any statue erected (for the southern side) that reflects Women of the South who are black.
