Confederate Girl: The Diary of Carrie Berry, 1864
Carrie Berry (au); Kerry Graves (ed); Suzanne L. Bunkers (fr)
Hardcover (no d.j.)
Carrie Berry and her family lived in Atlanta, GA, during the Civil War (1861-1865). They were Confederates, that is, Southerners who believed in a strong state gov’t. The South was one of the world’s leading suppliers of cotton and plantation owners used slaves to grow and pick the cotton. Northerners led by Pres. Lincoln opposed slavery. By February 1861, 11 Southern states had left the Union and formed the Confederate States of America. Civil War broke out. Carrie kept her diary for six months during the many battles fought in and around Atlanta and the destruction of everything of value by the victorious Union troops marching through Georgia. Carrie’s diary tells what life was like for a Confederate girl during the Civil War. Illus. Reinforced binding.
