Most Civil War books focus only on its male participants, but award-winning Southern historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook covers both genders. Having written extensively on the masculine side of the conflict, his positive, uplifting, inspiring, and educational book on Confederate females, unique in American literature, examines the feminine view of the War.
Entitled Women in Gray: A Tribute to the Ladies Who Supported the Southern Confederacy, this pictorial tour de force will evoke the gamut of human emotion, from laughter and tears to awe and outrage, as the reader pours over some 600 photos and illustrations of Victorian Confederate women, most from the South, but many from the North and West as well. Along with this visual feast - which aids in preserving our country's wonderful Confederate history - are included female-oriented reminiscences, stories, speeches, reports, poems, and obituaries regarding the Great War and the Southern Confederacy, covering the period from 1860 to 1918. Read in their own words the experiences, feelings, and views of the women who lived through both the War and Reconstruction, as well as those of their daughters and granddaughters, and discover the suppressed facts about Lincoln's War, the Confederacy, and the Union for yourself.
Women in Gray is perfect for Civil War museum stores and gift shops, historic homes, or any tourist hot spot connected to the War or American history. Makes a great personal gift as well. For the serious Civil War buff, historian, and scholar the book includes endnotes, a bibliography, and an index. This one-of-a-kind book is available in paperback and hardcover.
