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


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.
