Southern Homefront, 1861-1865

By John Hammond Moore

This penetrating portrait of behind-the-lines activity in a vital Confederate state is based largely upon thoughts and random comments of thirty-seven South Carolinians during war-time. As such, this book provides an overview of the ongoing struggle and its impact upon their daily lives. Thirteen women, including the slave Eliza, are given voice here, along with twenty-four men, including the state's governor. Thus, these are contemporary accounts found in personal letters, diaries, and newspapers. Southern Homefront reveals new "freedom" experiences by slaves, free blacks, women and teenagers....individuals who used wartime pressures to personal advantage.
