"This is about a middle class woman from England. The diary is interesting to see how dull women's lives were. Drawings from the young lady's journal were used in the book. Still, the text is hard to read at times."
"There is some debate about this book. Some believe the author is correct, some view it as nothing more than a guideline for those who wish to become a Civil War Reenactor. Personally, I thought it was a nice little book with great photographs. Do I agree with the author 100%? No. But its a nice book to have if you like to look at what women wore."
