This is a wonderful autobiography of a woman who was married to a Confederate officer during the War Between the States. While pregnant, General Sherman banished her and the wives of all other Confederate officers from the city and she was forced to fend for herself and her children. This is a brilliant bit of Memphis history told in the first person.

This memoir is a picture in the time(s) of Elizabeth Meriwether. Her memory of events seems quite clear and such interesting reflections of her life in the early 1800s through the Civil War and reconstruction period. Very well written and informative!
