Confederate Georgia

T. Conn Bryan


"[A] comprehensive study of life in Georgia during the Civil War . . . The account is clear, realistic, and intimate and is based upon the dominant theme of people constantly making adjustments and adaptations to a new way of life occasioned by the war. . . . [A] distinct contribution to the growing historiography of the South."
Journal of Negro History

"With a fine grasp of Confederate history evident throughout, [Bryan] properly sticks well to Georgia. Political and military events are adequately handled, but Bryan's flair is for the social and economic."
Journal of Southern History
