Women’s Participation During The Civil War Topic At October Round Table Meeting

Charen FinkSeptember 19, 2012 - Southport, NC – The Brunswick Civil War Round Table is pleased to have popular historian and living history interpreter Charen Fink, R.N., M.Ed., as guest speaker presenting in period dress at their Tuesday, October 2nd meeting. Her presentation is entitled, "Civil War Women at War."

The importance of women during the Civil War is often underestimated. From the daring adventures and the critical support roles they played, to those who actually became spies for both the Union and the Confederates, women were very much involved during that historic time. The men fought the battles and made the headlines, but the women made vital contributions affecting the events and eventual outcome of the war.

Ms. Fink's credentials and affiliations are most impressive. They include being past president of the Mahoning Valley Civil War Round Table, Society of Civil War Surgeons, National Museum of Civil War Medicine, Society of Women of the Civil War, Southport Historical Society, Cape Fear Civil War Round Table, and is currently a director of the Brunswick Civil War Round Table. She also volunteers for the National Park Service, and writes for several Civil War Round Table newsletters, including the BCWRT.

The meeting will be held at Trinity United Methodist Church, 209 E. Nash St., Southport. Registration begins at 6:30. The admission fee for guests is $5 which can be applied toward the $25 annual membership dues for adults and couples. There is no fee for students. The Round Table is a non-profit organization, therefore most of the fees and dues collected go toward inviting the most interesting and renowned historians each month.
