"This is an important contribution to the growing genre of community and home-front studies of the Civil War. The author has thoroughly accomplished his goal of presenting the story of Petersburg, one of the most important Confederate cities.... The scholarship is thoroughly sound and detailed.—James McPherson, Princeton University, author of Battle Cry of Freedom: The Civil War Era "This manuscript rests on a prodigious achievement: it surveys, to an impressive and exhaustive degree, the unpublished stories that touch on the story of Petersburg.... [combined] with the best current scholarship of the period. The result is an original work that should stand as the history of Civil War Petersburg for many years to come.
