About this title:

Synopsis: In the early 1900's the United Daughters of the Confederacy collected first-hand stories of daily life and experiences during the war years, from its vast membership. These wonderful stories were largely unknown for many years until Mrs. Charles Hough, a daughter of John "Coon" Thornton of Clay Count, Missouri, and President of Missouri Division U.D.C. in 1913, collected them into book form, producing this excellent work. This is a wonderful compilation from all sections of the state of the stories of ordinary women thrust into extraordinary circumstances. It is full of tragic stories of Jayhawker raids, Union militia atrocities, and yearning for a society that is gone. Some are stories of pro-southern or neutral families that were set upon and ruthlessly pillaged, while others tell of southern women aiding the Confederate war effort by providing supplies, spying, or harboring Confederate soldiers or irregulars. The stories of many prominent Missouri women are contained here, including Mrs. Bettie Shelby, Mrs. William H. Gregg, and Margaret A. E. McLure. Topics include Jayhawker raids, Order No. 11, the infamous practices of Union Provost Marshals, the Palmyra Massacre, Camp Jackson as well as battle accounts of well-known Missouri engagements by women who observed them at a less-than-comfortable distance.There are about 74 reminiscences in all, making it one of the most important published collections of primary source material on the experiences of Southern women in Missouri during the Civil War.
