From a Winchester native Aug. 4 2008
By Donald A. Tevault - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I'm both a Civil War buff, and a native of Winchester, Virginia. So, this book has special meaning to me.

Winchester has always been careful to preserve its history. So, it's fun being able to read about the locations in this book and say, "Yeah, I know that house. It's still there."

It also gives an excellent insight into how life was during the war, through the words of two young women who were on the scene.

Highly recommended.

The "Real" Story May 12 2013
By Larry Walters - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Get a glimpse of what the civil war was like for civilians especially women. This unique book is composed of exerts from the diaries of "Yankee" Julia Chase, daughter of Maine-born federal appointed postmaster, and Laura Lee, daughter of Mary Greenhow Lee, also a diarist during the war. Both Lees were staunch Confederates, "Suseches" (Succesionists) as the Union soldiers used to call them, consequently the reader gets opposing views of the same incidents from two completely adverse views. Since Winchester changed hands between the North and South some 69-99 times and was the sight of six major battles for the Shenandoah Valley, it is extremely interesting. These are views of real people who endured the worst of the war. There are over 10,000 dead Northern and Southern soldiers buried in and around Winchester, VA
