Most American Civil War histories available today were written by the victors. Dr. Gildersleeve gives us a unique view, as a southerner who experienced the conflict as both a civilian and as a soldier. He was a professor of Greek at the University of Virginia for nine months and spent three months of each year of the war as a member of the Army of Virginia.

Life was not easy for civilians of the confederacy during or after the war. A very interesting view of life in the South prior to, during and after the war.

It's a short read, but it takes you through the actual times and gives you the mindset of southerners. It will make you consider the events going on, and how they got up to 1865. You will walk away with a different prospective than what you had from high school history and college classes on the period. I should note....there are at least a dozen passages in the book....which are great pieces of writing.

I have been interested in the causes and ramifications of the U.S. Civil was for awhile. This book has given me a rare opportunity to hear from the side that lost the war. They say that the victors write history so when the opportunity arises to hear from the other side I like to listen.
