In their variety, the memoirs, poetry, and fiction show the transitory nature of the literature of southern women who lived through a violent and defining crossroads in their lives. In rare and rediscovered excerpts and verses these women writers evidence the early hopes of a cause destined to be lost, the propagandist rhetoric which accompanied it, and the destruction ultimately visited upon them, their homes, and their families. Dr. Casey Clabough, author and English professor at Lynchburg College, will relay in their own words how these Women of War coped with these life-changing events.
