Overview

Two personal diaries of southern women during the Civil War, first published long after the war. Beers' first-hand account of the Civil War from the perspective of a Confederate woman. According to the Preface: For several years my friends among Confederate soldiers have been urging me to "write up" and publish what I know of the war. By personal solicitation and by letter this subject has been brought before me and placed in the light of a duty which I owe to posterity. Taking this view of it, I willingly comply, glad that I am permitted to stand among the many "witnesses" who shall establish "the truth," proud to write myself as one who faithfully served the defenders of the Cause which had and has my heart's devotion." Plus Dawson's war-time diary of a young girl, first published in 1913.
