Bond, Priscilla - A MARYLAND BRIDE IN THE DEEP SOUTH : THE CIVIL WAR DIARY OF PRISCILLA BOND - LSU Press - ISBN# 0807131431 -BRAND NEW Hardcover with a Dust Jacket (Protected in a New Brodart Dust Jacket Cover) - 384pp - Biblio - Index - Edited by Kimberly Harrison - A young newlywed from Baltimore endures the "strange land" of south Louisiana "They say I'm a Yankee but if wanting peace is Yankee then I am one. I am tired of Disunion of husband & wife." In 1858, nineteen-year-old Priscilla "Mittie" Munnikhuysen began a new diary that saw her marry, leave her family in the genteel Protestant seaboard culture of Chesapeake Bay, and take up residence with her wealthy husband, Howard Bond, in the frontier plantation society of Catholic south Louisiana. By 1865, Priscilla Bond had witnessed trials and disillusionments enough to fill a two-volume journal: her father-in-law's brutality toward his slaves; her husband's alleged ambush of Union soldiers and subsequent flight from home; the retaliatory burning of the family's sugar plantation in Houma; and the losses, horrors, and daily depredations of war. Published here for the first time, with extensive notes and a critical introduction by Kimberly Harrison, Bond's intimate writings illuminate the Civil War's impact on women, families, and individual identities. Occasionally Bond records her experiences for the benefit of later readers, but more often she uses her diary to carve a space and time for self-reflection, self-instruction, and self-persuasion. Nineteenth-century women's lives were defined by their relation to others as wife, mother, daughter, and sister and keeping a diary allowed Bond to claim time for herself. It served as a rhetorical tool that helped motivate her to conform to contemporary standards of "true womanhood," adapt to a harsh new environment, and survive the collapse of a civilization - Publisher's List Price = $45 - Our Price - $34.95

Calcutt, Rebecca Barbour - RICHMOND'S WARTIME HOSPITALS - Pelican Publishing - ISBN# 1589802977 - BRAND NEW Hardcover in Dust Jacket - 224pp - Notes - Biblio - Index - Photos - Doctors attempting to deal with the carnage wrought by the Civil War faced more difficult challenges than the sheer number of the wounded. Fought at the very end of what is known as "the medical Middle Ages," the Civil War predated modern knowledge of bacteria and antiseptics. Doctors, who were then deemed fully trained after only a two-year course of study, had few diagnostic tools beyond their own reckoning at hand.While medical science enjoyed several advances during the Civil War, the doctors and hospitals in the Southern states faced overwhelming casualties with few supplies and inadequate personnel. By focusing on facilities in Virginia's capitol, Mrs. Calcutt illustrates how exhausted resources rapidly defeated southern doctors' heroic efforts. Richmond's Wartime Hospitals covers the more than fifty hospitals located in Richmond during the Civil War period, including each facility's location, dates of operation, and surgeon in charge. Where archival information is available, Mrs. Calcutt includes detailed descriptions of the buildings, first-person accounts of day-to-day operations, and other historical anecdotes - Publisher's List Price = $22 - Our Price - $19.95

(DownRamp) Richard Hall - WOMEN ON THE CIVIL WAR BATTLEFRONT - Univ Kansas Press - ISBN# 0700614370 -BRAND NEW Hardcover in Dust Jacket (Protected in a New Brodart Cover) - 397pp - Index - Notes - Biblio - Photos - the most complete portrait yet available of these courageous women - including Sarah Bradbury, Lizzie Compton, Frances Hook, and Confederate spy Loreta Janeta Velazquez many of whom earned the praise of the male soldiers they served with and rose through the ranks to become sergeants, even officers. Through his investigation of specific case histories, he has authenticated many previously undocumented reports while debunking myths and exposing previously published errors about the subject. The book also includes a biographical directory of nearly 400 women participants and dozens of Civil War documents attesting to women's role in the war. As a new synthesis and critical appraisal, Women on the Civil War Battlefront is a richly anecdotal work that unearths a hidden history and opens a new window on women's lives in the nineteenth century. These women were determined to serve, and Hall's research confirms that they did so in significant numbers and with distinction. - Publisher's List Price = $34.95 - Our Price - $31.95

(Howl) Petite, Mary Deborah - THE WOMEN WILL HOWL - THE UNION ARMY CAPTURE OF ROSWELL AND NEW MANCHESTER, GEORGIA, AND THE FORCED RELOCATION OF MILL WORKERS - McFarland Publishing - ISBN# 9780786461141 - BRAND NEW Laminated Softcover - 189pp - Notes - Biblio - Index - Photos - In July 1864, Union General William T. Sherman ordered the arrest and deportation of over 400 women and children from the villages of Roswell and New Manchester, Georgia. Branded traitors for their work in the cotton mills which supplied much needed material to the Confederacy, these civilians were shipped to cities in the North (already crowded with refugees) and left to fend for themselves. This work details the little known story of the hardships these women and children endured before and most especially after they were forcibly taken from their homes. Beginning with the founding of Roswell, it examines the prevalent atmosphere in the area and the pre-war circumstances that created this class of women. The main focus, however, is what befell the women at the hands of Sherman's army and what they faced once they reached Northern states such as Illinois and Indiana. An appendix details the roll of political prisoners from Sweetwater (New Manchester). - Publisher's List Price = $35 - Our Price - $32.99
