Much of women's history is focused on great or unusual figures who succeeded in or resisted a male-dominated world. As revealed in her diary, Samuella Curd is a woman who tried instead to conform to the popular middle-class ideals of womanhood in her day. The diary was begun in May 1860 on the day of Sam's marriage to Thomas Curd. It is a record of married life which began in the full blush of an antebellum Virginia wedding and honeymoon along the eastern seaboard and ended barely two years later in a small Missouri town with the death of her husband and the Civil War turning against the South. The diary documents Sam's responses to the strains of sickness, war, separation from family and faltering religious conviction. Professor Arpad provides an introduction, an epilogue and notes to the diary, reconstructing the historical circumstances of Sam's life and setting the diary in the context of current feminist historical research.
