Review: Mary Chesnut: A Diary From Dixie

User Review  - Thefarmingdaughter - Goodreads

A deep and insightful account of the War Between the States. Loved Mary Chesnut's wit, humor, and empathy. Very eye opening to the incredible hardships the Confederate home front faced. Can't wait to read the slightly more personal account "Private Mary Chesnut". Read full review
