Overview

Expelled from occupied New Orleans by Federal forces after refusing to pledge loyalty to the Union, Henri Garidel remained in exile from his home and family from 1863 to 1865. Lonely, homesick, and alienated, the French-Catholic Garidel, a clerk in the Confederate Bureau of Ordnance, was a complete outsider in the wartime capital of Richmond.

In his faithfully kept diary, Garidel relates the trials and discomforts—physical, emotional, spiritual, and professional—of life in a city entirely foreign to him. Civil War Richmonders were predominantly white, evangelical Protestants in a relatively small, insular city. His living quarters devolved from a private home shared with his family in cosmopolitan New Orleans to a cramped, cold rooming house away from everything familiar.

Trapped in Richmond for the last two years of the conflict and a witness to the eventual Federal occupation of the city, Garidel made daily entries that offer a striking and realistic blend of Southern domestic and political life during the Civil War. From his candid remarks about slavery and race, gender issues, military history, immigration, social class and structure, and religion, Henri Garidel's readers gain a revealing human picture of a major turning point in American history.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Chesson (history, U. of Massachusetts) and Roberts (foreign languages, U. of So. Indiana) present the edited diary of Henri Garidel, a French-Catholic clerk in the Confederate Bureau of Ordnance who was expelled from occupied New Orleans between 1863 and 1865, after refusing to pledge loyalty to the Union. Though born in the U.S., Garidel was part of the New Orleans Creole community, and often speaks as an outsider observing mainstream American society of the time. Accessible to the general reader with an interest in American history. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
