April 23, 1862 Issue:
Earnest and self-sacrificing as the male population of the South have been in the prosecution of
the war, they have been really excelled by the untiring and indomitable spirit of our women. They
have not only give up their sons, husbands and brothers to the cause, but their hands and hearts
have labored incessantly for our success and for the poor soldiers. One of the most well deserved
acts of the Confederate Congress was the passage of the following resolution:
Resolved by the Congress of the Confederate States of America, That the thanks of the Congress of
the Confederate States are eminently due, and are hereby tendered, to the patriotic women of the
Confederacy, for the energy, zeal and untiring devotion which they have manifested in furnishing
voluntary contributions to our soldiers in the field, and in the various military hospitals throughout
the country.
