More than twenty-five years after the American Civil War, Lucy London Anderson of Fayetteville, N.C., compiled one of the first memorial collections honoring the contributions of women to the cause. Her book North Carolina Women of the Confederacy, long out of print, assembled biographies, anecdotes, and poems concerning Southern women's experience during the war. This early historical text is once again available in a new edition featuring a clean and corrected setting of the type, historical introduction and annotations, and a valuable index of personal names. Scholars, genealogists, and casual readers alike will appreciate the reintroduction of this Southern classic, prepared under the auspices of the UDC Cape Fear Chapter #3.
