      The American Civil War illustrates how gender roles can be transformed when circumstances demand that women be allowed to enter into previously male-dominated positions of power and independence. This was the first time in American history that women played a significant role in a war effort, and by the end of the war the notion of true womanhood had been redefined.

      Kady Brownell was one of several women who enlisted with their husbands in the Civil War. She joined the 1st Rhode Island Infantry Volunteers the day after Fort Sumter fell, and fought alongside her husband in several battles, including the first Battle of Bull Run. Robert was wounded in the battle at New Bern, North Carolina, and the Brownells were transferred to New York while he recuperated. They were discharged in the winter of 1863.
