The Civil War is rarely shown through a young southern woman’s perspective. Many of these women were displaced from their homes and lived their lives on the run from Northern shellfire. Sarah Morgan was one of those women. She was only 20 years old when the North took over her hometown of Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but she wrote about her experiences in her diaries with insight and clarity well beyond her years. Paperback.
