Women in Baseball and the Post Office

Issues of gender inequality have had profound effects on all aspects of American society and its many institutions. In conjunction with the National Postal Museum’s upcoming exhibition Baseball: America’s Home Run, this collection will assist teachers in examining this issue with their students through two important institutions of the 20th Century: Major League Baseball and the United States Postal Service. The collection explores this essential question: How was the changing status of women in American society during the late 19th and early 20th centuries represented in professional baseball and the United States Postal Service? In small groups, students will discuss this underlying question through the variety of resources in this collection, examining the historical access women have had to these institutions, their divergent experiences compared to their male counterparts, and how women have historically been depicted on USPS stamps. Some supporting questions to scaffold inquiry can be found in the “Notes to Other Users” section.

Women in the Civil War

The Civil War was a war in the United States from April 12, 1861 until May 13, 1865. It was between North and South over issues on slavery. Women played significant roles throughout the war as nurses, as spies, as clothes washers and menders, and as encouragers to the soldiers. Many women from the North and South disguised themselves as men and fought. Other women took on roles at home to run their households as their husbands were off at war. Often times women are overlooked when analyzing the Civil War, however without woman's help the soldiers would not have been able to make it through the war.
