The Story the Soldiers Wouldn't Tell: Sex in the Civil War Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book to cover all aspects of sexuality during the Civil War. It is based on area original sources, including the soldiers' jokes, songs, letters, and diaries.

Book News Annotation:

Lowry (UC, San Francisco) offers an occasionally ribald but scholarly study of the sex lives of soldiers in the Civil War, using rare original documents such as letters and journals and reinterpreting official sources. He covers the pornographic book and card trade, women who served in the army as men, prostitutes and the origin of the term "hooker," legalized prostitution in Nashville and Memphis, venereal disease, rape, and homosexuality. Includes b&w photos, some of victims of the late stages of venereal diseases in the era before antibiotics.
