This morning I thought I'd play catch-up by working on the new blog for my history research-based group blog, Slip Into Something Victorian Blog , on the life of Sarah Emma Edmonds.
Sarah, born in 1841, disguised herself as a man to obtain a better living than she could as a woman during the nineteenth century. When the Civil War broke out, she joined up under the name of Franklin Thompson.
The things I'm learning about her and other female Civil War soldiers is so interesting, I could spend all my time doing research.
I'm using a lot of these facts in my new Civil War romance, Katie Rose. I've posted the intro and invite all of you to take a look at http://slipintosomethingvictorian.com/
