During the fateful winter and spring of 1865, thousands of civilians in South Carolina, young and old, black and white, felt the impact of what General William T. Sherman called "the hard hand of war." This book tells their stories, many of which were corroborated by the testimony of Sherman's own soldiers and officers, and other eyewitnesses. These historical narratives are taken from letters and diaries of the time, as well as newspaper accounts and memoirs. The author has drawn on the superb resources of the South Carolina Historical Society's collection of manuscripts and publications to present these true, compelling stories of South Carolinians.

About the Author:

Karen Stokes is an archivist with the South Carolina Historical Society in Charleston, South Carolina, and has published articles on South Carolina history in numerous newspapers and journals. She is the co-editor of Faith, Valor, and Devotion: The Civil War Letters of William Porcher DuBose and is currently editing another collection of South Carolina wartime letters for publication in 2013.

Review:

"Gen. William T. Sherman's destructive march through Georgia and South Carolina has been well documented. But often it gets told through the eyes of the military men. In Karen Stokes' new book, it gets told through the eyes of those who witnessed the Army's wrath." --Justin Paprocki, Island Packet
