Thank you for a thoroughly male point of view. Unfortunately you have totally missed any female point of view. The death of a son must have impacted his mother. Interesting Bayard’s mother was the sister of Elizabeth Cady Stanton. That said, Dr Ann Gordon just completed a 30+ year project of amassing Elizabeth’s correspondence. I urge you to research; attempt to find the letter Catherine sent to her sister, Elizabeth, announcing the death of Bayard. What else did she say about war in that letter? Overall, in your “teaching” of the Civil War, where are the voices of women? Submitted by Elizabeth Cady Stanton’s great-great granddaughter
