The Granite Farm Letters: The Civil War Correspondence of Edgeworth & Sallie Bird
University of Georgia Press, 1988 - History - 330 pages
Centered around a small plantation in the heart of middle Georgia's nineteenth-century cotton culture, The Granite Farm Letters send forth from the Civil War years not simply a record of clashing armies at the front or of the fraying fabric of life at home but also the correspondence of a close-knit family--the candid love and longing of husband and wife, the warm bonds of parents and children held firm through the turbulence of war.
