Mary Chestnut's Civil War
C. Vann Woodward (ed.)

New York: Yale/ Quality Paperback Book, 1995. Reissue As new. Softcovers. 886 pp. with index. Illustrations. Unabridged reissue published in conjunction with the Yale University Press. The incomparable Civil War era diarist Mary Chestnut was married to a high ranking member of the Confederate government and therefore ideally placed to watch and record the South's headlong rush to ruin. She herself was a paradox---an abolitionist, a feminist writer ("There is no slave like a wife") and was both participant and detached observer of all the strata of her society. As New Softcover (Item ID: E19892)
