Women Confront Confederate Forces in North Carolina's Quaker Belt

(p.37) Chapter Two Occupied at Home
The Long Shadow of the Civil War

Victoria E. Bynum

This chapter discusses Franny Jordan and how she followed a “squad of soldiers” who had seized her teenaged son with the intention of forcing him into the Confederate Army. Fearful of what lay ahead, she stopped at the home of a neighbor and enlisted the aid of two young women in retrieving her son. As the women approached the Confederate soldiers, the soldiers cursed them for daring to challenge their authority. When one of the women retorted that they intended to do “no such thing,” the soldiers surrounded her. Crying out “god dam her,” one man urged the others to “take her along too.”
