The Granite Farm Letters: The Civil War Correspondence of Edgeworth and Sallie Bird

Overview


Centered around a small plantation in the heart of middle Georgia's nineteenth-century cotton culture, The Granite Farm Letters send forth from the Civil War years not simply a record of clashing armies at the front or of the fraying fabric of life at home but also the correspondence of a close-knit family--the candid love and longing of husband and wife, the warm bonds of parents and children held firm through the turbulence of war.
