Civil War: A first hand account of women factory workers

I began working in the factory 4 months ago, when my husband left to fight the confederacy in the civil war. An increasing number of women and children are joining the factory. In the weapon factory, i feel like i am doing my part to help the war effort. We are producing mass amounts of weapons that are being sent to union soldiers on the daily. Since all the men are at war, women are stepping up to take the place of their husbands, brothers, and fathers in the factories.
