$10.00 $8.50

by Adelaide Stuart Dimitry
Originally Published in 1911

The papers collected in this small volume attempt to preserve and hand down to an interested posterity eyewitness sketches of key events in the War Between the States, largely as they occurred to women living in Mississippi and Louisiana. Subjects covered include the legendary "Battle of the Handkerchiefs" in New Orleans, the forgotten gallantry of William B. Munford, the services of Judah P. Benjamin, the ill-fated Louisiana, the trials of Reconstruction, and more.
