History and genealogy are expertly blended in this personal account of an aristocratic southern family and what they endured in the devastating aftermath of the Civil War. The book begins with the founding of Jamestown, Virginia in 1607, the first permanent English settlement in North America, and follows the author's ancestors up to and after the Civil War. Rich in historical detail, Bitter Ashes eloquently describes the destruction the family faced after the war-a war that left only ashes of what remained of their once-proud land.
