To drive home the full extent of northern domination over the South, Sherman's soldiers besieged the female domain-going into bedrooms and parlors, seizing correspondence and personal treasures-with the aim of insulting and humiliating upper-class southern women.
These efforts blurred the distinction between home front and warfront, creating confrontations in the domestic sphere as a part of the war itself. Women in the American Civil War: Volume 1. The traditional treatment focuses on the men who directed and fought the war.
