Michigan Notable Books author Jack Dempsey will talk about the contributions Michigan women made during the Civil War at a free lecture Thursday.

Dempsey is scheduled to speak at 5:30 p.m. at the Michigan Women's Historical Center and Hall of Fame in Lansing. Seating is limited and available on a first come, first served basis.

Copies of Dempsey's book "Michigan and the Civil War: A Great and Bloody Sacrifice" will be available for sale. The author will sign books during the event.

Dempsey says Michigan women during the Civil War gave battlefield support, violated regulations by serving in uniform and kept farms, businesses and families going on the home front.

He's president of the Michigan Historical Commission and chairman of the Michigan History Foundation.
