Description Information

A proud and elegant woman, descended from one of the Virginia's founding families, Mrs. Hugh Holmes Lee, tells a fascinating and compelling story about daily life and the hardships of the residents of the sleepy but strategic town of Winchester, VA.  From her front porch, she observed and recorded the comings and goings of both armies.  A staunch supporter of the Southern cause, Mrs. Lee viewed most Yankees with disdain, yet tended their wounded with the same compassion and grace as she did her own fallen soldiers.

On the occaion of the Sesquicentennial Commemoration, history scholars will find this a valuable resource of civilian life during the Civil War.  Eloise C. Strader has transcribed and edited Mrs. Lee's Journal for over twenty years and included an extensive collection of biographies which will be beneficial to genealogists.
