This lecture will chronicle the lives of Mary Lee (Robert E. Lee), Julia Grant (Ulysses Grant), Marianna Jackson (Stonewall Jackson) and Myra Hancock (Winfield Hancock) with emphasis on how they came to be military wives.

It will explore the women’s lives to see how each came to view their role as an Army wife and how that role affected their lives before and after the war.  How did they cope with the long separations, hardships of duty stations and the Army politics?

And it will show you that while most women of the era only had to put up with Army life for 4 years, for these women it was a lifetime.
