About this Item

Green cloth with gilt letters on the front cover and the spine. Very minor wear to extremities with nothing rubbed through, spine gilt dulled, cover gilt slightly dulled, else very good to near fine with no internal markings. No dust jacket. Born in Wapello, Iowa in 1867, Lucile Corner Dysart was the daughter of Mary E. Inigley and Julian W. Corner. In 1889 she married James K. Dysart, to whom this book is dedicated. "This narrative is a picture of the old South. It is practically the life story of the Dishart family. They were a religious people, and adhered closely to the teaching of their church. They had no scruples against slavery as they heard all their lives that it was a Divine institution, it has always existed and likely always would. They were true Southerners in every way, until the question of secession became an issue. This they could not endorse. James, encouraged by his wife, Sally, was a firm believer in the Federal union of the states. Their experiences were sad and hard but they finally did reach Iowa [where James] enlisted in the service [of the Union] for the duration of the war." [from the Preface] In this work of historical fiction, the "Sally" of the title is Sarah Isabel Maxey Dishart, born in Tennessee in 1930. Bookseller Inventory # 006158
