Editorial Reviews


""This manuscript breathes life into history by focusing on the struggle of Virginians to survive in the time of defeat, hunger, and deprivation in the closing months of the Civil War."--James A. Ramage, author of Gray Ghost: The Life of Col. John Singleton Mosby" --

""There is no other state series like this one on teh Old Dominion. It is unlikely to have a rival. One hopes that anyone interested in the Civil War, the South, or Virginia... will read this engrossing volume."-- The Civil War Monitor" --

""This is a fine contribution to the literature on how the war affected what was arguably the Confederacy's most influential state."-- America's Civil War" --

"All in all, for coverage by qualified authors of such important topics in essay format, this is an excellent volume and companion, this reviewer is sure, to the others in this series and is recommended to the readership. One cannot and should not expect any less from Messrs. Davis and Robertson. -- The Journal of America's Military Past" -- Stuart McClung, The Journal of America's Military Past

I read and enjoyed the entire series. My Confederate ancestors were Virginians and that is what initially created my interest in the series. What kept my interest was the series detailed and comprhensive study of the lives of non combatants and their trials and tribulations during Lincoln's war.

An excerpt from the review on StrategyPage.Com:

The final volume in a series the editors began in 2004, this work includes essays by specialists on different aspects of the Civil War as it involved Virginia during the course of a single year, in this case the final one of the war. The primary focus is not military operations, which are treated succinctly in the opening essay. This is followed by essays on the Home Front, the war economy, popular culture, the collapse and flight of the Confederate government, demobilization of Confederate forces, African-American Freedmen, and an overview of the devastated condition of the state as it emerged from the war. As with each of the earlier volumes, the concluding chapter consists of excerpts from the diary of Judith Brockenbrough McGuire, the daughter of a Virginia Supreme Court justice and mother of two Confederate soldiers, who in the final weeks of the war joined a flood of refugees.
