“Bloomer Girls” in Clinton county, New York - a bibliography

Soon after the Civil War women started to play organized baseball. I did a bit of research on the "Bloomer Girls", as they were called, in Clinton county, NY.

For more information about "Bloomer Girls" the Library of Congress has a sampling of articles from historic newspapers.
