Originally published in 1875, George Cary Eggleston's memoir, which proved immensely popular across the country, is a nostalgic, often amusing collection of essays based on the author's Civil War experiences. Eggleston describes life in Virginia before the war, offers glowing assessments of the men who filled the Rebel ranks and the women who stood behind them, satirizes the Confederacy's finances and its army's red tape, and recollects the war's end. He also provides compelling portraits of his heroes, lavishing praise on Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and especially Jeb Stuart.

From the Back Cover:

"The author deserves the thanks of all true Americans . . . His sketches are models of characterization."
-Philadelphia Bulletin, circa 1900

Through candid diary entries, George Cary Eggleston documents his experiences as a Confederate soldier during the Civil War. Rather than detailing specific military conflicts, Eggleston gives firsthand accounts of daily life on and off the battlefield. Those accounts provide portraits of such prominent Civil War figures as Robert E. Lee and Jeb Stuart while offering a less-than-favorable profile of Jefferson Davis. The author scrutinizes the Confederacy's financial woes, using personal and sometimes humorous anecdotes as examples. He also recalls his days before the war, when the Old Regime was a way of life in Virginia.

Respected writer and Civil War veteran George Cary Eggleston (1839-1911) was born in Indiana but moved to Virginia after inheriting the family plantation. He briefly studied law at Richmond College before enlisting in the Confederate army. During his service, he recorded his experiences in a diary that would later meet critical acclaim. Eggleston, who eventually moved to New York, was known for his contributions to such newspapers as the New York World, where he worked under Joseph Pulitzer, and the New York Evening Post. Eggleston is also the author of Red Eagle, a Firebird Press book.
