Synopsis:

Documented during the American Civil War, A Confederate Girl’s Diary provides a thorough account of civilian life in Louisiana during and after the war through the diary entries of Sarah Morgan Dawson, who used her diary to record her thoughts and experiences from 1862 to 1865.

Unwittingly, Dawson’s revelations about the Confederacy and her role as a refugee woman in a Union-occupied Louisiana have become imperative in our understanding wartime conditions in the South. Although she initially intended to have the writings destroyed after her death, Dawson’s six-volume diary survived to be published by her son in 1913.
