The war pulled white families apart in unprecedented ways, as a large proportion of men enlisted and fully one in five white men who fought for the Confederacy died. And while the chaos of war similarly dispersed the state's large population of African Americans, it also offered a chance for those families to overcome the longstanding separations wrought by slavery.

This well-written collection of twelve chronicles of southern families during the Civil War is worth reading. It provides rarely reviewed images of the struggles of Southern women trying to salvage what remained of family life while their husbands were at war. Daniel Stowell's presentation of "A Family of Women and Children" was especially valuable, providing images of a "temporary" female head of household trying to cope with family and slaveholder responsibilities. Judith Hunt's description (The Middleton Family's Civil War) of the 1865 crypt desecration and remains abuse of prominent white plantation owners by newly freed slaves was chilling and a Civil War reality often ignored.

Interesting reading although the generalized findings of some authors are questionable based on the limited amount of original materials used to support their research.
