This diary by Judith Brockenbrough McGuire, edited by James I. Robertson, Jr., is among the first of such works published after the Civil War. Although McGuire's is one of the most-quoted memoirs by a Confederate woman, James I. Robertson's edition is the first to present vital details not given in the original text. His meticulous annotations furnish references for poems and quotations, supply the names of individuals whom McGuire identifies by their initials alone, and provide an in-depth account of McGuire's extraordinary life. Hardcover, 366 pages.
