Battle on the Homefront

This exhibit is about the threats that Confederate wives faced in the absence of their husbands. Through the eyes of Martha Poteet of McDowell County and Ann Bowen of Washington County, North Carolina this exhibit explores what life was like for Confederate families who were forced to make it on their own without much support from their husbands, fathers, and brothers who were off fighting under a Confederate flag all the while facing obstacles which threatened the life they had known until the outbreak of the Civil War.
