Sinossi

As fresh and poignant today as when they were written, these touching letters capture the heart of everyday life during the Civil War. Set both at home in Florida and on the front, the letters were written by two generations of families whose members included radical secessionists, moderates, and even a few Unionists.

The domestic letters, written mostly by mothers and daughters, describe their emotions in dealing with Yankee invaders and slaves, and offer a rare picture of the expanded roles of women as farm managers. From the military camps, soldiers write about Abe Lincoln, "colored troops", and deadly battles.

Especially, though, the letters tell the love story of Winston Stephens and Tivie Bryant, whose brief married life was interrupted by the war, then destroyed when Winston was killed in battle just days before their only son was born.
