    1. This book is the account of a woman living in the South during the Civil War. It amazes me how resilient she was in the midst of hardship. It's such a raw, unfiltered book from a primary source with facts that are hard to find nowadays, in our censored, inoffensive world. Hopefully I can write a more in depth review later, but for now, I highly, HIGHLY recommend it.*Reread 12/13/17. I have been getting into Civil War reenacting and wanted to read some civil war books to get into the mindset. :)* [...]

    2. This is a slender book. A first hand account by a woman slave holder on the Civil war. It is moving and interesting.

    3. A concise journal of a plantation, "Burge," in Covington, GA in 1864 and the experience of Sherman's army passing by the farm during the Civil war. As told by Dolly Lunt Lewis, wife of Thomas Burge. We visited this plantation recently, still intact and an operating facility for weddings, etc.

    4. Interesting as a historical document, but take it with some salt; it is, of course, strongly biased by the author's viewpoint.
