  • A Treasury of Confederate Heritage: A Panorama of Life in the South

A Treasury of Confederate Heritage: A Panorama of Life in the South is filled with 245 stories that offer a unique and comprehensive view of the American Civil War. Not only stories of the fighting, but a rare look at the private life of the people of the South, make this edition an important contribution to the volumes written on this period. The writer highlights the daring, the fortitude, the suffering, and the heroic endeavors of the citizens, soldiers, and sailors of the Confederacy. The collection includes stories about battlefield, camp and hospital incidents, guerilla exploits, home life in Dixie, and action on the high seas.

The character of the men in gray is reflected in the everyday life and sayings of a society that present a more intimate knowledge of them. Four years of heroic sacrifice, glory, suffering, fortitude, and valor are interwoven in this outstanding anthology about the South and its culture. The wit and humor, the quaint sayings, and rough camp jests and pranks that prevailed in the ranks of the armed forces are included as well. By editing this one-of-a-kind collection, Walbrook Swank offers one of the greatest insights yet available to the culture of the South during this time period.
