It is a shame that this lovely set of books contains the diary as edited for publication in the late 1800's rather than than the one that C. Vann Woodward put together with that diary and fragments of other writings of Mrs. Chesnut. That has been noted by other reviewers, however if one can only get the photographs of Buck and others with this purchase so be it. Putting faces to many of the names in Mrs. Chesnut's diary makes it all worth while to me.
