About the Author

Sarah Morgan was born in New Orleans on February 28, 1842 to Judge Thomas Gibbes Morgan and his second wife, Sarah Hunt (Fowler) Morgan. She spent her early childhood in that city until her father relocated the family to Baton Rouge in 1850. Although Sarah received less than a year of formal education, she pursued a serious course of study on her own, learning French and obtaining the wide knowledge of English literature which would later contribute to her skill as a writer. The war years were difficult for the Morgans, who suffered the loss of four family members between 1861 and 1863. Sarah's favorite brother, Henry, was killed in a duel in the spring of 1861, and her father died several months later. Three other brothers threw in their lot with the Confederate States: Gibbes and George joined the army and were killed in 1863, and the youngest, James, joined the navy and survived to publish his own memoirs, Recollections of a Rebel Reefer, in 1917. Young Sarah carefully recorded her thoughts and experiences of the war, beginning in March 1862 through to the end in April 1865. Although an ardent supporter of the Confederate cause, she did not hesitate to acknowledge any kindness shown by members of the Federal guard, her disapproval of women's secessionist talk, and her despair over the future of the South. The Morgan family moved to Columbia, South Carolina in 1872, where Sarah began writing for the Charleston News and Courier under the nom de plume, "Mr. Fowler." She married the newspaper's editor, an ex-Confederate officer named Francis Warrington Dawson, in 1874, and the couple had three children. Sarah died while living in Paris in 1909.

I began this book years ago, but did not finish and was glad to find it on Nook. The Nook version has too many formatting errors in it that make it difficult to read. I would recommend the book, just not in the Nook form.
