Disunion, War, Defeat, and Recovery in Alabama: The Journal of Augustus Benners, 1850-1885
Mercer University Press, 2007 - 357 halaman
Based upon a thousand-page daily plantation journal which was kept during the tumultuous years from 1850?1885, it is a compelling story of how a Southern planter and his family in Alabama survived and prospered in those critical years. Of special significance is the account of daily events of the Civil War years and the post-war years of rebuilding and recovery.
