What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

This book was a joy to read. Broomall uncovers the thoughts and feelings as well as the lived experiences of his subjects, shedding new light on the ways in which citizen-soldiers responded to the collapse of their world.--Sarah Gardner, Mercer University



By following the private writings of Southern men through secession, civil war, and defeat, James J. Broomall has written a fresh, lively, and rigorous emotional history of the Confederacy. Private Confederacies reveals how Southern men lived through the eras historians typically use to organize the past into tidy epochs. At the same time, Broomall unflinchingly underscores the pernicious cause for which they fought--slavery and white supremacy--and its violent manifestations in postwar vigilante violence.--Timothy J. Williams, University of Oregon
