Just after the Civil War, Mary Abigail Dodge traveled from New England to Minnesota and then through the war-ravaged South. Part documentary and part philosophical, Wool-Gathering describes a nation in transition. Dodge includes descriptions of travel by rail and steamboat, a service in an African-American church, Southern attitudes after the War, and farm life in Minnesota.
This ebook is a transcription of the first edition (1867), with a brief essay on the book and book reviews from 1867.
