Civil War re-enactor making documentary about women who fought

Refused at first as a re-enactor, J.R. Hardman turned to historic, real-life pioneers for inspiration.

J.R. Hardman is fighting to up the profile of actual women who fought undercover in the American Civil War – so that she is accepted as a legitimate re-enactor.

    If anyone is interested in women who fought in the Civil War, I recommend the book They Fought Like Demons: Women Soldiers in the Civil War by De Anne Blanton & Lauren Cook, Also, for stories of non-combatants as well as solders, there’s Amazing Women of the Civil War: Fascinating True Stories of Women Who Made a Difference by Webb Garrison.
