Nineteen year old Pauline DeCaradeuc began keeping a journal in the summer of 1863 to record the day-to-day events of the Civil War. The words of the spirited young woman offer us a vivid and moving account of life on the Southern home front during the war and the difficult years of reconstruction that followed.
A fascinating historical document that spans a quarter of a century, Pauline's journal not only chronicles events of the war but also gives the reader an intimate view of the dichotomous existence of Southern families on the home front struggling to preserve their social structure in the face of danger, deprivation, and decimation.
Illustrated with black-and-white photographs, including frontispiece: portrait of Pauline DeCaradeuc Heyward.
Includes bibliography and index.
