Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
This book is not simply a reissue of A Confederate Girl's Diary , but the complete version of Morgan's diaries. Morgan had the rare opportunity to observe society and conditions before the federal occupation of Baton Rouge, Louisiana during the Battle of Baton Rouge, as well as life in both Baton Rouge and New Orleans under the occupation. Some of her more vitriolic comments deal with the role of women in Old South culture, General Butler, commander of the Union occupation forces, and the conduct of the federal occupation troops. Morgan's diary should rank alongside Mary Chesnut's famous wartime journal ( Mary Chesnut's Civil War, LJ 3/1/81) as one of the most important personal records of the Civil War. Highly recommended for four-year college and university libraries.-- W. Walter Wicker, Louisiana Tech Univ. Libs., Ruston
Booknews
Long recognized as one of the most important records of a war that produced many of the genre, the Morgan diary drew great acclaim when it was first published in 1913 as A Confederate girl's diary (and revised and republished under the same title in 1960 by Indiana U. Press). Despite the acclaim, the diary has never before been available in its complete form. In this new and meticulously footnoted edition, Charles East corrects errors of transcription and restores the passages cut by the diarist's son in the original edition--deletions that amounted to more than half the diary. East also provides a thorough introduction. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
