lviii, 886 pp. "The cast of characters that her journals endowed with such vigorous life and reality includes slaves and brown half-brothers, poor whites and sandhillers, common soldiers and solid yeomen, as well as the elite of government, army, and society who thronged her drawing room daily. In Mary Chestnut's Civil War, C. Vann Woodward provides the first full and reliable edition of the journals, making use of surviving parts of four manuscript versions. He restores significant passages from the original diary of the 1860s, which was written in the heat of the moment and revealed much that the author suppressed in the version intended for publication."Winner of the 1982 Pulitzer Prize in history.Keywords: CIVIL WAR AMERICAN HISTORY MILITARY BIOGRAPHY Ink markings on front paste-down endpaper.
