confederate women civil war

Only 13 years old when the American Civil War began, Emma Riely was to experience the destruction of the south by Union troops and meet her future husband, Confederate soldier Rueben Macon. Living near troops, Emma and her beautiful sister, Kate, found themselves in great demand. She has many sad and funny stories to tell and she set them down in this volume for her children and grandchildren.

Her husband also shares his experiences during the war in Ewell’s Division.
