Centered around a small plantation in the heart of middle Georgia's nineteenth-century cotton culture, The Granite Farm Letters send forth from the Civil War years not simply a record of clashing armies at the front or of the fraying fabric of life at home but also the correspondence of a close-knit family―the candid love and longing of husband and wife, the warm bonds of parents and children held firm through the turbulence of war.

About the Author:

JOHN ROZIER was a native of Hancock County and served as director of Public Information Services at Emory University. He is also author of The Houses of Hancock, 1785–1865.

Review:

The Birds believed in a society divided by caste―both race and class. He was devoted to wife and family, and there is great tenderness in their letters.

(New York Times)

“Rozier’s engaging collection . . . reminds us again that the world of that class was, in essence, a circle of kith and kin. . . . Each of their graves are marked by cold funeral monuments, but these pages, brimming with vitality, are a more fitting remembrance. Now, thanks to Rozier and the fortuitousness of history, the Birds will live in the imaginations of readers who pick up this wonderful book. (Atlanta Journal-Constitution)

These letters . . . carry the reader across a fascinating southern landscape. (Civil War)

This is an edifying and intensely moving book, one of the very best of its genre. It gives readers an exceptionally clear look into the hearts and minds of a family swept up in the hope, grandeur and agony of the Confederate experience. (Charleston Post-Courier)

This set of letters . . . give us a portrait of the war unlike anything we have ever had before. (Richmond Times-Dispatch)

A graphic and poignant picture of the South during the Civil War. (Savannah Morning News)
