The Nameless and the Faceless Women of the Civil War
with Lisa Samia

Countless unknown women witnessed the Civil War; their lives and experiences were lost and forgotten. What must they have felt and how did they cope? Step back into time and hear the voices of the past come to life as award-winning poet and author Lisa Samia shares from her book The Nameless and the Faceless Women of the Civil War.

Lisa G. Samia is an Award-Winning Poet & Author who loves American Civil War History. Her latest accomplishments are being selected as the National Parks Arts Foundation’s Artist in Residence for Gettysburg National Battle Park 2020 & National Parks Service’s Artist in Residence for Manassas National Battlefield Park 2021, both for her Civil War Poetry. Her works include “The Nameless and the Faceless of the Civil War,” a collection of 28 poems and 28 essays on the historical representations of Civil War events through the rhyme and narrative of poetry. It was released in April 2018, and endorsed by Eric Swanson, the NYT best-selling co-author of “The Joy of Living.”
