Confederate Homefront: A History in Documents
The study of Confederate troops, generals, and politicians during the Civil War often overshadows the history of noncombatants—slave and free, male and female, rich and poor—threatening obscurity for important voices of the period. Although civilians comprised the vast majority of those affected by the conflict, even the number of civilian casualties over the course of the Civil War remains unknown. Wallace Hettle’s The Confederate Homefront provides a sample of the enormous documentary record on the domestic population of the Confederate states, offering a glimpse of what it was like to live through a brutal war fought almost entirely on southern soil. -- Provided by publisher
