It is refreshing to see that this is an equal opportunity unit! Although not historically correct it sends the right message! Well seen and captured Judy! ;-)

@Eric Cousineau: Re: the historic correctness, there were more female soldiers than most people know of. Here is one riveting story, which a case in point. You might enjoy reading it.

You go "Rosetta"! Many women did not fight but still fought many "battles" while fathers, husbands, and sons were away. Great shot!

@Georgie: Glad you read about Rosetta; she was a strong woman. You're right, many women did not fight, but were nurses, cooks, etc. Louisa May Alcott was a nurse in Washington, D.C. during the Civil War. Other known women were Clara Barton, who later founded the American Red Cross, Harriet Beecher Stowe, and Dorathea Dix.

She is amazing,and women are doing so many things that their male counterparts are doing/can't do nowadays!:)

@tyan: Some women actually dressed as men and fought alongside men. More of them were nurses and cooks, but they were dedicated and amazing.

Barbara from Florida, United States

Excellent framing of the shot. Very authentic presentation they gave, your image takes us to that time in history. I appreciate that you added the link.

@Barbara: Thanks ... that time in history is an important element of our nation's changes. ... I was delighted to see how many videos people took over that weekend.
