Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This original diary of the wife of Confederate General James Chestnut, Jr., who was also an aide to President Jefferson Davis, provides an eyewitness narrative of all the years of the war. Period photographs illustrate this you-are-there account of the daily lives and tribulations of all who suffered through the war, from ordinary people to the Confederacy's generals and political figures.

Synopsis:

In her journal, Mary Chestnut paints vivid pictures of the social life that went uninterruptedly in the midst of the war; of the economic conditions that resulted from blockaded ports; of the way in which the spirits of the Southern people rose and fell with each victory and defeat; and of the momentous events that took place in Charleston, Montgomery and Richmond.
