New Online: Diarist Documents Eventful Times on the Confederate Home Front (Library of Congress)

Library of Congress: New Online: Diarist Documents Eventful Times on the Confederate Home Front. “‘A diary, faithfully kept in such eventful times as these, must be interesting to our own children,’ wrote Betty Herndon Maury on June 3, 1861, explaining her purpose in keeping a journal after Maury’s family chose to leave Washington, D.C., to cast its lot with the new Confederate States of America. By October 1861, Maury feared that she already had recorded so much that her diary would be ‘too voluminous’ for her daughter, Nannie Belle, to read later. Fortunately for posterity, Maury continued to write, recognizing that ‘these are such eventful times and there are so many interesting incidents that I do not know which to omit.’ Maury’s two-volume diary is now available online at the Library of Congress.”
