Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Originally published in 1875, George Cary Eggleston's memoir, which proved immensely popular across the country, is a nostalgic, often amusing collection of essays based on the author's Civil War experiences. Eggleston describes life in Virginia before the war, offers glowing assessments of the men who filled the Rebel ranks and the women who stood behind them, satirizes the Confederacy's finances and its army's red tape, and recollects the war's end. He also provides compelling portraits of his heroes, lavishing praise on Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, and especially Jeb Stuart.
