The Private Mary Chesnut: The Unpublished Civil War Diaries (A Galaxy Book) by Mary Boykin Chesnut

Pulitzer Prize-winning historian C. Vann Woodward and Chesnuts biographerElisabeth Muhlenfeld present here the previously unpublished Civil War diariesof Mary Boykin Chesnut. The ideal diarist, Mary Chesnut was at the right placeat the right time with the right connections. Daughter of one senator from SouthCarolina and wife of another, she had kin and friends all over the Confederacyand knew intimately its political and military leaders. At Montgomery when thenew nation was founded, at Charleston when the war started, and at Richmondduring many crises, she traveled extensively during the war. She watched aworld literally kicked to pieces and left the most vivid account we have ofthe death throes of a society. The diaries, filled with personal revelations andindiscretions, are indispensable to an appreciation of our most famous Southernliterary insight into the Civil War experience.
