The story


Broken Heart – The state of heartbreak was constant. With their husbands gone with the militia, those left behind lived in constant fear and worry. Women accompanying their husbands to war endured backbreaking labour and social isolation. The new widow had to wed another soldier immediately or face ejection from the company. Too frequently, they suffered sudden and traumatic loss. Broken hearts were just more casualties of war.
